I deeply appreciated your article “Israeli water solutions can help world, author says at Cal Poly” (April 7). Addressing droughts that suck up water is important so people know ways of making good use of water that is increasing in scarcity. This made me want to respond to your article because as a Californian, I am hit directly by the drought.
Ways of fighting the low water levels can be things like imposing higher fines on those who go over water limits or reducing the amount of wine that is made by wineries, since they are a major problem in terms of water use.
Recognition of California’s drought, which affects over 98 percent of the state, will help raise awareness around the world.
