Green New Deal: California To Cut Off Water Supply Over Drought — After Dumping Trillions of Gallons of Freshwater Into Ocean!

Last month, Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom declared a drought emergency and announced a new $5.1 billion “water infrastructure and drought response” spending package. The US Bureau of Reclamation reported in May that the 2021 water year for the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Basin is currently the driest since 1977, but the year is only half over.

While California is having a dry year, California has been dumping TRILLIONS of gallons of freshwater into the oceans in recent years to protect a non-endangered bait fish called the Delta Smelt. A Central Valley Farmer said, “Our reservoirs were designed to provide a steady five year supply for all users, and were filled to the top in June 2019.” She said that by emptying reservoirs, California is on track to have a man-made drought crisis every time there is a dry season.

“The 2021 water year for the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Basin is currently the driest since 1977,” the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation warned in May.

Additionally, all residents are being asked to conserve their water consumption.

But how did this drought really start?

In recent years, California has been dumping TRILLIONS of gallons of freshwater into the oceans to protect a non-endangered bait fish called the Delta Smelt.

And that practice of emptying the reservoirs is continuing to this day, according to Central Valley Farmer Kristi Diener.

“Are we having a dry year? Yes,” Diener said. “That is normal for us. Should we be having water shortages in the start of our second dry year? No. Our reservoirs were designed to provide a steady five year supply for all users, and were filled to the top in June 2019.”

“How can this year be the driest year on record when it has more than 7 months left? That’s just fake news and crisis creation.”

“Before our magnificent reservoir projects were built, California never had a steady and reliable supply of water. Now water is being managed as if those reserves don’t exist, by emptying the collected water from storage to the sea, rather than saving it for our routinely dry years,” Diener explained.

“Our water projects were designed to be managed for the long term providing a minimum five-year supply, but California has now put us on track to have a man-made drought crisis every time we don’t have a wet season,” she added.

Once again, the Democrats appear to be creating the very crisis they themselves are claiming to address by spending more money the state doesn’t have in the name of saving the environment.

Recycled Water From Sewers Coming to California Taps

The California Water Resources Control Board will allow treated recycled water to be added to reservoirs, the source of California municipal drinking water. The Water Board claims the water will be “highly treated.” San Diego is leading the state in infrastructure to begin carrying out a sewer-to-reservoir operation but the rest of the state likely will follow. [It is probably true that chemical treatment of sewage will kill most bacteria in sewage, but who dares to look carefully at the chemicals, including prescription drugs that have been excreted into sewer lines? Those and the chemicals used for purification might be even more deadly than the sewage. Never mind building new reservoirs to store rain water as it flows out to sea from the Sierra mountains. Let’s drink treated sewage instead!] -GEG

Water that once coursed through city sewers may soon find new life coming out of your home faucet.

New regulations approved Tuesday by the California State Water Resources Control Board allow treated recycled water to be added to reservoirs, the source of California municipal drinking water.

The regulations specify the percentage of recycled water that can be added and how long it must reside there before being treated again at a surface water treatment facility and provided as drinking water, according to the Water Board.

“This is a type of indirect potable use — it’s not treated recycle water that goes directly to someone’s house,” said Miryam Barajas at the Water Board. “It’s highly treated.”
