Pro & Con: Infrastructure improvements are necessary for water security

Much has been said recently about what is the worst drought our state has experienced in recorded rainfall history. Farmers are being forced to drastically reduce their water use or ditch their plans to grow this year, ranchers are not able to afford additional feed for their cattle and are being forced to sell and counties and cities are looking for ways to dampen the effects of the drought on their communities. No one is questioning the severity of the drought and the ramifications on our economy and the people of California, but where do we go from here? We need to be discussing the short-term and long-term solutions to the problem.
