Gov. Jerry Brown declared the state’s drought over, but in the long term the availability of water locally is still going to pose a problem, according to a new government report.
A report released last week by the Interior Department said annual flows in three river basins – the Colorado, Rio Grande and San Joaquin – could decline by as much 8 percent to 14 percent over the next four decades.
The Colorado and San Joaquin rivers supply water to Southern California.
I’m sure their (seemingly endless) climate model circle jerk is very fulfilling, but they should be preparing for the floods which will be coming down the Colorado River in a few weeks.
Looks like they are doing a Queensland repeat.
