Dang, who wrote this incoherent rant? It seems that the Sun agrees with the Governor that the state needs to expand and improve its water system, as well as cleaning up contamination of groundwater supplies. But the Sun is peeved that the Governor hasn't declared "the drought" to be over? How are these points even related? What if the Governor DID say "the drought is over"? Does the Sun then change its mind and decide that California's water infrastructure doesn't need to be improved after all?
By the way, the "drought" that we should be worried about is not the year-to-year fluctuation in rainfall and reservoir levels, it is the fact that the state's water supply system operates on the hairy edge of failure ... a few dry years, environmental restrictions, declining snowpack, levee failure, any one of these can bring the state to its knees. And the fact that there's been a lot of rain this year doesn't change these facts.
