The California Drought Documentary - Part 1

February 02, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Just in case you don't live in California or haven't seen the news in several months, California is in the midst of its worst drought ever recorded.

2013 was California's driest year in recorded history and now,  it has been estimated that more than a dozen towns can run out of drinking water in the next 2 months.

Friday brought the announcement that water supplies will be cut off to agencies that supply millions of residences. 25 million Californians will have a significant part of their water supply cut. There will still be drinking water but it will be coming from a different source.

Most of California is in what is considered an "extreme drought" while some parts of central and southern California are in an "exceptional drought" which is the highest designated ranking.

 I went out to the Stevens Creek Reservoir in Cupertino today to see how much water was there.....there was basically none. It was crazy. I've never seen anything like it.  Below are the some of the photos I came away with. 

I will be going out to other reservoirs and documenting the drought as it continues. Please do all you can to conserve water. It is so important now.
