According to this news report, water rationing may soon be starting on 2 major San Francisco Bay Area counties.
EBMUD votes today on restrictions that may force Alamada and Contra Costa County residents to slash use by nearly 20%.
Keep in mind: it’s only May. We had the driest spring in more than 100 years. And more unusual heat is not out of the question.
Global warming is most certainly a factor. If you don’t think so, you’re not paying attention.
On the flip side, our extended weather forecast does include chance of rain in the next week. Which would be amazing! And would provide a little relief.
What do you think: would you be prepared to make adjustments if your county were to ration your water?
