Snowpack provides third of California water

Snowpack provides about a third of the water used by California’s cities and farms. As of April 1, 2014, the California statewide water content of snowpack stood at only 32% of the average historical April 1  amount.  The date is crucial because this is when the snowpack is at its peak and begins to melt into streams and reservoirs, said USGS

Drought causes water famine leading to crop disasters. It degrades water quality, and leads to surface and groundwater level declines, land subsidence, soil erosion, intense wildfires, humongous dust storms, and spread of disease.

State of Emergency

Governor Brown proclaimed a State of Emergency on January 27  amid the worsening statewide drought.  He called the “really serious,” adding that 2014 could be California’s third consecutive dry year. “In many ways it’s a mega-drought.”
