How much water is used for Agriculture in California?

    The answers to this question tend to swing with who you ask. The Pacific Institute states that agriculture consists of 80% of all water usage, while the California Farm Water Coalition cuts that figure by about half, saying that agriculture takes up only 41% of all water usage. Out of the 82.5 million acre-feet of water available in California, agriculture uses between 33.825 (my the California Farm Water Coalition’s estimates) and 65.76 (by the Pacific Institute’s estimates) acre-feet of water.

    (1 acre-foot is about 325,851 gallons )
