California’s water system is in crisis.  California’s serious water shortages, brought on in part by drought conditions, have persisted over time. However, for the first time in the state’s history, the water supply and delivery system may not be adequate to meet the needs of the growing population. With aging infrastructure, continued population growth, and looming impacts from climate change, California is facing a complex set of problems that threaten the future of California’s water supply.
