California Drought Sparks Innovative Solutions
On 30 April 2014, The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) released a report with analysis of 5,400 groundwater wells across the state signaling historic declines in water levels. Groundwater provides approximately 60% of California's water supply in a dry year (40% in an average year), and 2013 closed as the driest in recorded history. In many areas of the San Joaquin Valley, recent groundwater levels are more than 100 feet below previous historical lows.
