CALIFORNIA WEIGHS CHANGES FOR NEW WATER RIGHTS PERMITS IN RESPONSE TO A WARMER AND DRIER CLIMATE
WESTERN WATER NOTEBOOK: STATE WATER BOARD REPORT RECOMMENDS ALIGNING NEW WATER RIGHTS TO AN UPENDED HYDROLOGY
As California’s seasons become warmer and drier, state officials are pondering whether the water rights permitting system needs revising to better reflect the reality of climate change’s effect on the timing and volume of the state’s water supply.

A report by the State Water Resources Control Board recommends that new water rights permits be tailored to California’s increasingly volatile hydrology and be adaptable enough to ensure water exists to meet an applicant’s demand. And it warns that the increasingly whiplash nature of California’s changing climate could require existing rights holders to curtail diversions more often and in more watersheds — or open opportunities to grab more water in climate-induced floods.

Cant supply everybody especially when the growth trends of new home keep pushing the market. CA developers want to expand housing, why should they care about the water shortage? Unless it hampers their own agenda to build more houses? And make money.
Who cares about drinking it though, when you can tax the boaters who ride on the water for play, too! safely.. (not so we can get more boats on the water <cough>, yes it is <cough> but because the water cops are going to need something to do when its bumper to bumper boats)
Revenue and Profit at the expense of peoples space. Works great as long as you're not the one living in the crackerjack box.
If people would stop and look, they would be able to comprehend that continuing to dividing more-into-less is a diminishing return.

This is from a Restore the Delta email:

"The beneficiaries believe more dams will mean more water for farmers. More specifically, almond farmers. Almonds trees take approximately 3 gallons of water to just grow one almond. Almond orchards use 10 percent of the water of California. Expanding almond farming is risking California’s water future for financial gain."
