Sustainable Water Management – that’s what we need!
California’s persistent water shortages are not a water supply problem—they are a water management problem. California’s history of moving water from one region of the state to another has led to an inequitable, energy intensive, and unsustainable water management system. Mega-infrastructure projects like imported water and ocean desalination are not viable long-term water supply options. To date, however, statewide funding encourages the financing of mega-infrastructure projects that are expensive to both the state and the rate-payer, and do not provide the same return on investment as other water supply options. To become water sustainable, California needs to prioritize its funding of water supplies based on sustainability criteria to ensure Californians are getting the most out of their water infrastructure investments.
California residents have been asked to be vigilant and cut back on household water use, but only about 4 percent of California’s water footprint is individual, personal use. A stunning 93 percent goes to agriculture, according to a 2012 Pacific Institute report, so if we really want to talk about drastic conservation, perhaps we should look at our food choices.
