CALIFORNIAâ€™S notoriously partisan lawmakers ended their legislative session in the early morning of September 12th with a frantic but largely futile effort to pass a raft of bills. Among the many bills that failed was a package of five that addressed perhaps Californiaâ€™s oldest and most intractable problem: water.
California is in the third year of a drought that exacerbates its constant struggle to expand its economy and population in a climate that is naturally dry. About 75% of the stateâ€™s rain falls in the northern part, but about 80% of the agricultural and urban demand for water is in the south. As a result, California has over the past century built a mighty infrastructure for moving water. That infrastructure, however, is now creaking and must be fixed.
