CA Farmers Find Unlikely Ally In Weathering Drought: A Major Utility Company
I got this artcile on national geographic group members may like to read this one. Driving around the drought-parched San Joaquin Valley here in California's Central Valley, Segura winces as he describes groundwater wells "being sucked dry" and drives by full-grown citrus trees dying because farmers don't have enough water to sustain them.
"With row crops like lettuce, you can simply not plant. If you have trees, you can't just not give them water for a year," said Segura, a PG&E account manager, as we pass by a hilly grove of water-starved grapefruit trees with dry dull-green leaves and withered fruit.
