City Of Torrance Plans To Become 100 Percent Water Independent

After the driest January on record, 44 percent of California is now experiencing moderate drought conditions. But, the city of Torrance has taken steps toward its goal of 100 percent water independence. At the center of the plan is an expansion of a system that removes salt from the city’s groundwater. “Our water is provided through our water department to our citizens at about 50 percent cheaper than other cities,” Mayor Patrick Furey said.
