Thousands of California farms have been ordered to stop pumping river water to irrigate their crops as the state grapples with its fourth year of drought, officials said Friday.
Farmers receiving the order can still pump water from the ground, which officials said comes at the risk of depleting wells in some areas. Those who violate the order may be fined up to $1,000 a day or $2,500 for each acre-foot. Violators even face prosecution in court, officials said.
No fines for " depleting wells in some areas" ?

Every time I flush the toilet at my house 100% of the water goes back into the system and is used by someone else. Every time I take a shower, do dishes and/or do laundry 100% of the water I use goes back into the system and gets used by someone else
Nice job libtards

California's emergency regulations do not, for now, ban the filling of private or public swimming pools, the state says local water suppliers "will decide how to meet their conservation standard, which could include limitations on the filling of swimming pools."

According to the California Pool and Spa Association (CPSA), the state has more than 1.2 million private pools and about 300,000 commercial swimming pools belonging to local municipalities, hotels and apartment complexes.

And your point is? There's no proposed law/regulation that says pools can be or can't be filled. I could support a law/regulation that requires ALL pols be covered when not in use.
My pool with its cover on looses less water than the grass next to it does through trans evaporation.

The point is "Replenish the aquifer ".
transpiration

Water board passes mandatory water limits
Some cities already have begun to put in place rules to meet the targets. Last month, San Jose banned all home car washing and filling of swimming pools and limited lawn watering to two days a week.
An economic study by the board found that the new rules will cost cities, water districts and private water companies at least $600 million from lost water sales. That will have to be made up for in higher rates.
The rules approved Tuesday, which will be reviewed by state legal advisers before going into effect, require cutbacks of 4 percent to 36 percent in water use, with communities that use the most water being asked to enact the deepest cuts.

Urban users will be hardest hit, even though they account for only 20 percent of state water consumption, while the state's massive agricultural sector, which the Public Policy Institute of California says uses 80 percent of human-related consumption, has been exempted.

What the state needs to do is look at how those farmers are using that water and just what its actually being used for.
Why am I being told I can't use water so said commodity can be taken and used to grow price, taxpayer supported crops.
It's a management problem!

Every time I travel down I-5 along the west side of the San Joaquin Valley and see all the farmers signs whining about how politicians are taking all their water and forcing them, the farmers to "fallow" their fields and/or let their orchards die I feel a sense of rage.

A couple of points need to be made:

1. The west side of the San Joaquin Valley has historically been a dust bowl, grass and sagebrush.
2. The water that is being taken from those farmers never was theirs.

Having driven I-5 up the west side of the San Joaquin Valley immediately after its opening I can say for fact that the majority of the west side of the San Joaquin Valley was not under cultivation.

We all know that ANY legislation created during this drought will be brought by Moonbeam and the libtards and it will be politically motivated and more or less useless.
