The problem is too darn many people. I have been saying for more than 20 years to close all the borders to my native California. Not only are we lacking infrastructure, we do not have the water.
I worked for a water company for 31 years, and for almost 20 years longer than that, they were in a water war. They lost and had to stop taking water from areas that had gone dry. I see water wars beginning here.
Hey, people in charge: You cannot put so many people and so much agriculture in an area that routinely has droughts.
What are you thinking? Do you want the “too many rats in a cage” syndrome that happened in the last city I lived in? I have worked with rats — put too many in a cage, and they bite one another.
I know this is asking a lot of the people in charge, but stop building until you can provide adequate water necessary for life.
