Early in January, California Governor Jerry Brown declared that the state is facing a drought. According to the Drought Monitor, about 67 percent of the state is in an extreme drought with 9 percent categorized as in exceptional drought.

Just how severe is the current situation? It’s severe enough for the State Water Project to reduce the allocation of its water to zero; a first in its 54-year history. 25 million residents and 750,000 acres of farmland that receive water from The State Water Project will have to rely on other sources, including other reservoirs.
