In this video report, Gary Gileno argues that, if California really did have a water shortage, why does it invite unlimited migrants? The California water shortage is greatly exaggerated for political purposes, which is the justification for more government control. It is a jarring fact that only 11% of available water is allocated for urban use, 41% goes to agriculture, and 48% is allocated to protect the environment. The federal government has control over that portion and requires most of it to flow into the Pacific Ocean!
As we have seen in California’s Central Valley, which used to be the breadbasket of America, supplying over 50% of the nation’s vegetables, fruits and nuts, government control over water has become control over the food supply. No water, no food.
The goal of Agenda 21 is to keep adding so-called environment regulations to single-family residences until compliance becomes so expensive that more and more people will be forced to move into ‘stack ’em and pack ’em’ high- rise apartment buildings that will monitor all elements of human behavior. Orwell’s fictional book, 1984, is becoming reality.
Three months ago, the California Water Resources Control Board announced that it will allow treated recycled sewer water to be added to reservoirs, the source of California municipal drinking water. The Water Board says the water will be “highly treated.” San Diego is leading the state to begin carrying out a sewer-to-reservoir operation. and the rest of the state likely will follow.
It is true that chemical treatment can kill most bacteria in sewage, but there are other things even more dangerous than bacteria. Who dares to look at all the chemicals, including prescription drugs that have been excreted into sewer lines? It is not hard to imagine that these, in combination with chemicals used for purification, could be even more toxic than plain sewage. It is ironic that government planners are not interested in building reservoirs to store clean rain water as it heads out to sea from the Sierra mountains. Let’s drink treated sewage instead!
In the early 2000’s, the community of Sun Valley in Los Angeles County was faced with flooding that impacted homes and businesses during winter rains. The county planned to spend $47 million on a storm sewer system to drain the flood waters from streets and dump it in the Pacific Ocean. Instead, community planners decided to invest those funds in underground cisterns that would capture the water for later use. The result was a system, using ancient Roman technology (click here for photo), that captures 8,000 acre feet of water each year, about twice what the entire city consumes. And it is clean.
