No Water, No Development

The report released today by Ernst & Young and the Urban Land Institute calls water profligacy an “American way of life” and sees real limits to where people can go to live in the US because of water supply issues. 

Nowhere is this more evident than in California where, after the best rainfall totals in years, the state has announced that water allocations will still be far below normal. In fact, they call for much needed “long-term solutions to improve water supply reliability.” As engineers we applaud this kind of investigation and implore you to write about this issue with a sense of purpose.
