How does the California water allocation program work?



  1. 0 Votes

    California’s Water Allocation Plan works to use water in a sustainable fashion.  Each year they allocate out a certain percent of water from the dams and canals that they use to collect water.  During the late part of the 20th centuries, there were many wet years.  Because of this the allocation has been pretty high.  But over the past decade or so, the rain seasons have been dry.  The allocation has been pretty high in recent years because of the large lag time between dry seasons and ground water supplies.  Now the dry seasons are starting to catch up with the water allocation amount and the water being allocated is decreasing.
