  • Californians Debate Easing Water Restrictions
    authorities may ease up on the restrictions Water board officials say they are considering reducing conservation targets by up to 8 percent for some of the state s more than 400 water agencies That s higher than an earlier draft in December which suggested up to 4 percent cuts in the targets the Mercury News reported The proposal by the State Water Resources Control Board would also mean less onerous conservation mandates for California s fastest growing communities as well as those that have created new drought resilient water supplies for themselves through recycling desalination or other means The Sacramento Bee reported The possibility of a new framework has revived the debate in California over the effectiveness of mandatory cuts Some critics insist that cuts should not be the only tool the state uses to offset for the effects of drought Timothy Quinn executive director of the Association of California Water Agencies expressed concern about overemphasizing this approach in a Sacramento Bee editorial He pointed out that water agencies have invested in projects to diversify their water supplies They have funded water recycling water storage and desalination projects If the State Water Board s current approach continues in 2016 there could be little incentive for public water agencies and their ratepayers to invest in additional drought proof supplies Water agencies also could see damage to their credibility with customers if they cannot use the very tools paid for with ratepayer dollars the report said He called on the board to consider water supply tools not just water demand management tools such as cutbacks He called on the state to recognize both types of tools as equally important For cities investing in ways to secure their water supply restrictions can seem to ignore their hard fought investments The San Diego County

  • What’s The World’s Most Water-Vulnerable Nation
    Management Rosemount Analytical Degremont Technologies Brentwood Industries View All Providers News Feature January 26 2016 What s The World s Most Water Vulnerable Nation By Sara Jerome sarmje Jordan Yemen and Djibouti lead the world in water vulnerability according to a recent study Researchers say the vulnerability of water resources poses a significant threat to the stability of nations This argument and an assessment of which nations are most water vulnerable comes from a study published in Environmental Research Letters The study examined freshwater vulnerability based on categories including endowment demand infrastructure and institutions By evaluating 119 lower per capita income countries we find that every nation experiences some form of vulnerability the study said Determining shared patterns of freshwater vulnerability provides insights into why water supply vulnerabilities are manifested in human water systems at the national scale The study included researchers from Stanford University s Global Freshwater Initiative Some study highlights per Stanford University Institutional issues are the most common factors generating water supply vulnerability affecting nearly 40 percent of the 119 low income nations studied The most prevalent issue was corruption which can paralyze water development projects and regulation Patterns of vulnerability are often similar in countries that would otherwise seem to have little in common A lack of precipitation does not necessarily equate with water supply vulnerability Study co author Barton Thompson said one of the key takeaways from the report is that there is overlap in the factors that create water vulnerability in disparate nations We have often incorrectly assumed that the lessons of water challenges in one country are not transferable to others he said Vietnam Guatemala and Sri Lanka for instance face vulnerability factors such as high population densities high numbers of species needing protection low governmental transparency and a lack of water regulation

  • Economic Crisis Could Follow Colorado River Cuts
    the country Cuts could force an economic crisis on the region Between them the seven basin states have an annual Gross Domestic Product of 3 trillion to 3 5 trillion per year That puts the region between the sixth ranked United Kingdom at 2 86 trillion GDP in 2015 and the fifth ranked Germany which hit 3 8 trillion GDP in 2014 and 3 37 trillion in 2015 according to International Monetary Fund statistics the Arizona Daily Sun recently reported citing Jeremy Aquero an economic analyst for the Las Vegas based consulting firm Applied Analysis Looking at only the areas within the seven states that use river water their total GDP is 1 4 trillion he said citing figures from an Arizona State University study this year But economic impacts in areas that use river water would have a significant ripple impact in parts of those states that don t use the water the report said citing Aquero What would water cuts mean for surrounding states If you disrupt agriculture manufacturing or housing because of a water induced interruption the implications will reach well beyond that specific industry or that specific location Aquero said per the report Population growth is putting an increasing strain on the Colorado River State officials have long said they are in good shape due to water conservation efforts decades ago but with more people flooding the West the demand will grow Phoenix Business Journals reported Arizona gets 1 5 million acre feet annually from the Colorado River The earliest shortages could impact the state s supplies would be in 2017 or 2018 One sign of stress on the Colorado River is the effects on Lake Mead one of the river s reservoirs By the end of October 2010 data from the U S Department of

  • Obama Vetoes Clean Water Rule Takedown
    waters have been left vulnerable Obama said per USA Today Pollution from upstream sources ends up in the rivers lakes reservoirs and coastal waters near which most Americans live and on which they depend for their drinking water recreation and economic development Congress had passed legislation striking down water regulations passed by the U S EPA Congressional Republicans tried to use a rarely invoked law known as the Congressional Review Act to overturn the regulation But they re far short of the two thirds vote necessary in each chamber to overturn the veto It passed 53 to 44 in the Senate and 253 to 166 in the House the report said The federal Clean Water Rule expands the number of U S waterways regulated by the federal government The EPA argues that the rule is necessary to protect waterways and because Supreme Court decisions make it unclear what the agency may regulate under the Clean Water Act Opponents including congressional Republicans and the agriculture industry say the EPA overstepped its bounds in rolling out the new regulation But even with Obama s veto the rules remain in jeopardy Court challenges make it unclear whether the rules will become fully implemented This courtroom battle is just one of several major water fights expected in 2016 That s because agricultural interests out West are fighting federal enforcement of existing regulations as well as the implementation of new rules Capital Press reported A few of the most important legal battles as described by Capital Press In California the Duarte Nursery is seeking to overturn a finding by the U S Army Corps of Engineers that switching from spring to winter wheat resulted in plowing activities that affected wetlands in violation of the Clean Water Act In Wyoming farmer Andy Johnson is challenging a

  • Drought Over But Texas Water Woes Remain
    KROHNE Inc Kaeser Compressors Inc Emerson Process Management Rosemount Analytical Degremont Technologies Brentwood Industries View All Providers News Feature January 21 2016 Drought Over But Texas Water Woes Remain By Sara Jerome sarmje A four year drought ended in Texas last year and now the state is almost universally out of drought conditions according to the U S Drought Monitor But water challenges have not evaporated in the Lone Star State The amounts of water stored in the ground are still greatly below normal The Fort Stockton Pioneer recently reported citing scientists at the University of Texas at Austin The analysis of satellite data indicated that the state lost 84 million acre feet of water during the peak of the drought but had only recovered about 10 percent as of January 2015 How bad are current conditions We re short about three Lake Meads said Gordon L Wells an Earth scientist per the report Arizona s Lake Mead holds about 26 million acre feet of water As another means of comparison Texans in 2012 used just over 16 million acre feet of water for all purposes according to the Texas Water Development Board so the stubborn storage deficit detected by the satellites represents almost five years worth of the water used in the state the report said Population growth and climate change is putting additional stress on the region When the drought ended official state Climatologist John Nielsen Gammon levelled with residents per The Texas Tribune about ongoing uncertainties He said that although the state may stay wet in the coming months Texas is not off the hook forever There s reason for optimism and hope There s also this certainty Sooner or later drought will return to Texas And if we break the hydro illogical cycle each drought makes

  • Facing Drought Farmers Turn To Produced Water
    California are using oilfield wastewater to irrigate and a new panel has begun taking one of the state s deepest looks yet at the safety of using the chemical laced water on food crops The regional water board will use the panel s findings to guide its oversight of the recycling of oilfield wastewater the Associated Press reported The state officials academic experts and industry representatives on the panel are charged with studying the safety of irrigating food crops with oilfield wastewater that may contain chemicals and other material from hydraulic fracturing other intensive drilling methods and oilfield maintenance the report said Experts say that so far research has showed negligible amounts of chemicals in recycled oilfield wastewater the report said But more attention is pivoting to the issue as the practice becomes more widespread In the fourth year of California s drought at least five oilfields in the state are passing along their leftover production fluid to water districts for irrigation for recharging underground water supplies and other uses the report said Chevron is among the companies supplying oilfield wastewater for irrigation Almond pistachio and citrus farmers are already using this method Critics say questions remain about the safety of irrigating with recycled water The nonprofit Pacific Institute which studies water issues points to questions about this practice according to the AP It calls the effect on food largely unstudied and unknown Researchers don t know the long term toxicity of up to 80 percent of the hundreds of materials used in oilfield production the report said citing Pacific Institute researcher Matthew Heberger Policymakers have raised concerns about this issue Last year California Assemblyman Mike Gatto D Glendale argued that crops irrigated with recycled fracking wastewater should be labelled as such Capital Public Radio reported Using recycled oil and
