Essential reading in a state facing the future with an overextended water supply, this fascinating book shows that, for all Californians, every drop counts. New to this updated edition are additional maps, figures, and photos; expanded coverage of potential impacts to precipitation, snowpack, and water supply from climate change; updated information about the struggle for water management and potential solutions; new content about sustainable groundwater use and regulation, desalination, water recycling, stormwater capture, and current proposals for water storage and diversion; and an additional table summarizing water sources for 360 California cities and towns"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
