Being we are a technologically advanced people, much of growing has turned indoors with hydroponic 'gardens'. I don't know if there is less water consumption, but it could skew your data.

How much so? I remember reading an article in a local Humboldt county newspaper that was discussing the issue of legality of search warrants based on energy consumption records garnered from the electric company. (PG&E)

Much rhetoric about the invasion of privacy, but the most telling was the estimated number of homes thought to be grow houses. The figures indicated that the average block would be teeming with indoor gardens and no residents.

Given the effect all that marijuana can have on the residents that must consume it, can only imagine they would all choose to vote for a new source of liquid to nurture our crops.

Yes it could skew the data true. Hydroponic is so much better quality, I was told

Sometimes hydroponic gardening is done with the cooperation of fish that provide the dookey. I've see the results of tomatoes grown with fish emulsion.

From what I have seen the weed growers are using chemical cocktails that would make your head spin all in the name of increasing yield. Definitely not using fish poop.

A drought of common sense

California’s water shortage results from decades of Democratic inaction

Illustration on the California drought and its causes by Alexander Hunter/The Washington Times

EX:

Since 1970, Democrats have enjoyed virtually uninterrupted control of the State Legislature. At any time, they could have taken action to address our water infrastructure shortcomings and the inevitable droughts that cycle through California.

It's difficult to have sympathy for a state that is so stupid.  If Texas did this kind of crap, dingding would make a whole thread on the stupidity.  Anyway, why is California so damn stupid?  Must have a bunch of snail darter fanatics, redwood hugging, pro-abortionists running the state.  The more I read on this subject, the more fascinated I become.  A lot more important than who is going to bake the gay cake in a tuxedo and then deliver with pizza, to a backyard gay wedding celebration.

Beverly Hills Residents Might Have to Stop Refilling Their Pools and Ponds

[Image via Michael Locke / Curbed LA flickr pool]

The (revised) statewide drought restrictions are hitting everyone hard, but especially cities singled out for excessive water use, like Beverly Hills. BH was told they'd have to reduce their water consumption by 36 percent or face heavy fines from the state, and the LA Times reports that they might be adopting some drastic measures to meet those lofty goals. That could mean—gasp!—not being able to refill their swimming pools or decorative ponds.

A report compiled by BH city staff presents three possible ways the city could cut back on water use. The most drastic plan, which the city's public works commission supports, would turn off water fountains; ban refilling swimming pools, ponds, and spas ( "except when necessary for reasons of health"); and have everyone on a city-mandated lawn-watering schedule. Violators would be fined as much as $1,000. (Is that even prohibitive here?) On top of those measures, the board could charge residents water rates that are ten times above normal if they go above their allotted water amount.

The other two plans are less drastic: Water cuts by 25 to 30 percent and limited lawn-watering—still those $1,000 fines for violators, though. So far, the city has made marginal efforts to reduce its water usage by 10 percent, doing things like encouraging its citizens to voluntarily restrict lawn-watering, so whichever plan is selected, it's likely to be jarring for residents. Beverly Hills' City Council will discuss all three plans tonight.—Leonard Hyman

Give us your fresh water or we won't grow crops.

That's the problem, you have a source for water.  You decide to let it run into the ocean. The decision to save the smelt costs all of us.  Look how many agricultural jobs have been lost in California.

The State of Missouri is going to start a campaign to bring farm business to Missouri from California.  I  believe that Illinois has similar works in action.  While the temperatures aren't the same, we have water everywhere.

"we have water everywhere.".

When the socialists running our federal government get ahold of that information they'll probably penalize your farmers for an unfair advantage.

What I don't agree with is the money being spent on a ridiculous bullet train that is going to have no impact on reducing emissions from automobiles.  That has been proven.  The project needs to be stopped immediately and the funds need to be diverted to building as many desalination plants as possible.  We're in a drought and we have the largest body of water in the world right next to us.

Dear Rest of America,

We gots us some plenty of water now. Thanks for the concern.

Appreciatively yours,

California

P.S. Can y'all send some sand bags? Our levies have been a wee bit neglected.
