California’s drought greatly affects San Diego communitiesSan Diego imports 95% of its water from two sources, the Colorado River and from Northern California. American Rivers, a nonprofit organization said that the Colorado River is on the very top of the most endangered list. High demand has drastically reduced the river’s flow.  Water from snow packs’ in Northern California are 52% below normal.  Wildfires is a risk due to this drought. Due to dry weather and lack of rain caused dry spots around San Diego County. 
   
   
Since January 1st “CAL FIRE has responded to almost 300 wildfires across the state nearly burning 3,200 acres.  Our reservoirs water levels are drastically low. As of March 15 our reservoirs levels remain low, including: Castaic Lake 29% 33% of year to date average, Don Pedro 43% of 60%, and Exchequer 9% of 16% and their are many others.

We have increased a couple of our reservoir storages. Central Valley reservoirs gained 235,000 acre-feet in net storage. Shasta Reservoir increased by 47,000 acre-feet, and San Luis Reservoir, increased its storage by 77,000 acre- feet. 

Farmers are struggling from this drought.  San Diego has over 6000 farmers, which is more than any state in the US.  Many products may not be helping San Diego conserve water such as Almonds (1.1 gallons for each almond, 80% of the US almonds come from California), Avocados (which is the 4th most valuable crop in San Diego, 93,000 tons produced here. In a normal year, Morro Creek Ranch’s avocados require about 1 1/2 to 2 acre feet of groundwater per acre, and during the current drought they can require 2 to 4 acre feet per acre.), and craft beer (“breweries use an average of four to seven gallons of water to make one gallon of beer

The drought has greatly affected San Diego communities due to excessive use of water. Everyone needs to conserve water and only use it if it’s necessary.  Hopefully by doing so, we can maybe get through this drought.
