So is California like... out of water?

California has about one year of water stored. Will you ration now? - LA Times

I know we have a lot of ppl from Cali on here. Scientists have been saying that a lot of states out west are going to have water issues sooner than later so... True?

I hope its not as bad as they are saying. I know there are a lot of ppl starting ask "wtf" about certain locations like a huge city in the middle of a desert "Phoenix" and other locations like that that maybe we should not exactly be developing...


I guess the *** pounding we took this winter with all the snowfall/precipitation in the Northeast is actually a blessing. Just sucks to drive in and then the salt trucks...

Agree, last time we saved so much water that they had to raised the price to cover for the loss income. Now they are working on several desalination plans in the SoCal area to help out.

SoCal has always been dependent on water. We have to ship a ton of it down to you lmao.

Yall mafakas literally have 850 miles of coast line.
Figure it the F out lol.....

If you guys die of thirst, it wasn't because your state didn't have access to water. Okay?

lol yeah. For all the dumb crap that government burns piles of money on, you would think they would be able to figure out how to get water that literally composes your entire western border..

Crap like this is why I question whether or not california is even part of the U.S.A. I also question whether or not the socialist republic of california actually wants its people to live at all...

God damn settlers rode their home made buggies behind horses out there. Even the women and small kids went on the journey. They went off road for 2200 miles on a wooden cart, just because they thought it would be cool when they got there.. You guys have semi trucks, cars, tankers, water treatment plants, trains, and perfectly paved roads. But you guys cant figure out how to go to the ocean and get water from it? I suppose this is how evolution works

I don't know what they are talking about... We have plenty of water here in Northern California.
We just need to stop sending it all down the 600+ mile aqua duct to those goddamned bunch of "sponges" in SoCal.
Seriously though, CA is a desert. It is only our ability to pump ground water and our ability to move the water from one end of the state to the other, that makes it habitable, in most parts of the state.
Water has been, and always will be, a huge issue in this state.

I'm in No Cal. 50 miles from Oregon and 50 from Nevada. Last year was the first year, in the 35 years that I have lived here, that part of our county had their wells run dry. So the answer is yes. There is definitely a problem and if the bureaucrats think that they are going to legislate our wells, it is going to be a whole nother, north vs. south.

They give $500 dollar fines if they see you washing your car or watering your lawn here. So Northern California doesn't have it all that great either.

So is California like... out of water?

Way to completely leave out most of the law.

It's on specific days of the week you aren't supposed to wash the car. And only certain times of day you aren't supposed to water your lawns.

A person who actually knows the right times to water their lawn for best affect will know that time window falls within the allowable time in the law... Weird how that works out.

And the washing the cars on certain days. Yea it's to prevent those of you who dump water on that thing every single day. Learn how to keep it clean throughout the week. Water from a hose hasn't touched my car for months and it's perfectly clean. Cover it, detail spray, waterless wash, Rinseless wash ect.... Hosing the car down is just a waste of time and water now, not needed.


Don't bash or criticize the state if you don't actually have an idea of what is going on here. Because it looks like most of you don't even have a clue.

We still have better scenery, beaches, weather ect than all other states.

I'm as conservative as can be, but yes we are in a drought right now. People need to realize we have to save water, not because someone is telling you to, but because if you don't we won't have any of it left.

I've got a question for you, just out of curiosity for my own personal knowledge.

Does this apply to car wash businesses? Do they only operate at certain times/days as well?

That's a very good question!
I am unaware of any restrictions on car wash businesses at this time.
But that could change...

Car wash businesses I believe are supposed to have a water reclamation system. So it's not like the water is just going down the drains

Sacramento, so it can vary a bit. For us we can wash on Sundays. Idk the hours for lawns though.

There has to be some sort of way to water your lawns though. If it's all dead and dry that's a fire hazard.

Since i live 10 min away from the beach,, the morning breeze and fog takes care of the lawns. Maybe that's why they feel like there is no need to waste water on lawns?

Most likely. I go to school in Walnut Creek area and it is a better climate. Not as dry as Sacramento

Even in Sac I would wash the car any day of the week and never had an issue. But that was before I switched to Rinseless.

What's also interesting about Florida's government is that they will impose a water restriction usage during the summer months; no watering of lawns except for assigned days, yet they gave approval for a water bottling company to draw millions of gallons of water from its underground aquafers each month.

Seems if there's tax money to be made, the seriousness of the water shortage is not such an issue.

Yep, one thing that blows my mind is that Nestle has its biggest water bottling plant in... California... like... wth??? My wife was saying what they are doing is making agreements with the native tribes to pump ground water on the Reservations which are not subject to federal law. I've also read that the water being tapped into now is water that cannot be replenished easily or quickly, its water that was deposited tens of thousands of years ago deep underground.

So we'll see. I know "this has been going on forever" in California but its not looking like it is business as usual this time.

Well, the problem is that there is X amount of water and the population continues to grow. All of the available water sources were exploited, in the first half of the 20th century... Going on 100 years! There are no more available, large, sources to "tap". There is desalination, as mentioned earlier, but that process is very expensive and has the same problem as converting all vehicles to electric... It requires enormous amounts of energy that isn't being produced.
This drought, in CA, will have a far reaching effect on the entire United States. This is an agricultural state and the farmers are the first ones to have their water restricted, or shut off completely! Everyone can expect to pay more for their fresh vegetables.

There is a PBS documentary, on YouTube, called "Cadillac Desert". It's a good history of the water struggles of the southwest US... With a little of the typical PBS liberalism thrown in. Lol.
It's kind of interesting how fragile that the existence of some very large metropolitan areas really is. Completely dependent on water that comes from hundreds of miles away, or stored in dams on the Colorado river system.

Mind boggling.

I've seen a documentary like that, maybe it was that one specifically but I don't remember. Basically saying that the areas that are now massive population centers were never meant to get as big as they did and are now all on borrowed time. Like Phoenix... that city should not exist, at least not at the current size it is. There isn't enough water for everyone and in the end I really think a lot of people are going to have to just walk away. They won't be able to sell their homes and its going to be really ****ty. One reason I don't get so pissed anymore about the massive snowfalls we have been getting here recently in the NE. All that meltwater goes right into the reservoirs.

I don't want to thread-jack, but what products are you using specifically? I live in the swampy south so water isn't an issue, but water spots are (well-water sucks so bad down here).

Yep. Phoenix and the entire Los Angeles basin.

If you travel the Southwest, there are large communities that the ancient Native Americans abandoned for no apparent reason. A lack of water will displace any human population...
