Effect of Climate Change on Water Supplies

Effect of Climate Change on Water Supplies

Climate Change is projected to reduce water supplies mostly in the southwestern, central and southeastern regions of the United States. Today 10 percent of counties are at high or extreme risk of water shortages, and in 2050 that proportion of at-risk counties will grow to 32 percent. Projections assume an increase in greenhouse gas emissions through 2050 and a slow decline after.

PG&E (Rothschild) abandoning water-power project – Impacting 600,000 water customers . . .

https://www.pressdemocrat.com/news/9211996-181/pge-abandoning-water-power-project-in

EXCERPTS:

n a letter to Mendocino County stakeholders, the embattled utility said: “We recognize the gravity of this action, but believe it is appropriate given PG&E’s current circumstances.”

The expected bankruptcy filing “underscores the decision,” but was not the primary cause, PG&E spokesman Paul Moreno said. “We have been looking to divest this and other (hydro) projects that are noneconomical for years,” he said.

Power from Potter Valley exceeds the cost of alternative sources of renewable power on the open market and is therefore a burden on PG&E ratepayers, Moreno said.

But the water is virtually invaluable, especially to towns and ranches along the upper Russian River from Potter Valley to Healdsburg. The 7,000-acre valley alone produces $34 million worth of wine grapes, cattle and other products a year.

Grant Davis, general manager of Sonoma Water, said the water diverted from the Eel River and stored in Lake Mendocino near Ukiah, is “critically important” to his agency’s 600,000 customers.

Asked if Sonoma County could afford to lose that water, Davis said: “I think everyone would like that answered.”

WATER TAX HEIST: California’s, Gavin Newsom’s budget calls for new tax on drinking water – Tax on water NOT fit to drink . . .

The water is polluted!  All OUR secondary water supply is polluted . . .
 
We are and have been served up water from the secondary water supply, rain and snow melt. 
 
Rain and snow melt is captured in reservoirs after running over land that is contaminated with poisonous toxins from the OVERHEAD aerosol spraying and then flows over land saturated with fertilizers, and more. Then water treatment chemicals are added before being pumped into your municipal drinking water.
