California Or Ethiopia? “Families Dream Every Night About Water”

From the article:

It’s worst and getting worst-er. Hundreds of domestic wells in California’s drought-parched Central Valley farming region have run dry, according to AP, leaving many residents to rely on donated bottles of drinking water to get by. With government set to regulate deeper drilling, hope is plunging that a solution to California’s drought will come anytime soon as groundwater levels plunge. The stories of struggle are simply stunning, especially given they are coming from America with Governor Brown signing an executive order that provides money to buy drinking water for residents statewide whose wells have dried up. “We need water like we need air,” exclaimed one charity leader trying to raise money for water tanks, “Families every night dream about water,” said another. And ripped from the famine-headlines of East Africa, “every day [Californians] thinking about how they’re going to deal with water.”
