As More People Move To The Inland Empire, How Is There Going To Be Enough Water?

With all of the new housing going up and considering we’re in a drought area, how is local government going to provide enough water? Water scarcity is an issue people in Southern California think about a lot. California experienced one of the worst droughts in state history from 2011 to 2017. Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought State of Emergency in 2014, calling for statewide water conservation. By 2022, California residents will need to limit their indoor water use to 55 gallons of water per person a day. And by 2030, that number will drop to 50 gallons.
