California’s Water Use Not Expected To Change In 25 Years
Sacramento, CA — A new study out that finds in 25 years, California is expected to use about the same amount of water it uses today.
It´s interesting news considering the state is projected to add another 12 million people over that time period.
The California Water Plan found that farmers, who currently use about 80 percent of the state´s “developed water,” will use less as new development reduces the amount of irrigated farmland by about ten percent. Irrigation systems are also expected to become more efficient.
