Water is one of the primary needs for life, so a water crisis raises major cause for concern. Water shortage can and have occurred in many places throughout history, and one of the most recent examples is the dry spell that has been burdening California for more than three years now, with no end still in sight. This is not the worst drought experienced by the state, as experts say that the area has gone through dry spells that lasted 10 to 20 years in the past. However, that doesn’t make the current situation any less worrisome.
The Office of Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. reports about the measures the state is taking to help combat the water shortage, including putting up more legislations against water wastage. Governor Brown has also been discussing with experts about water conservation efforts.
