Your Call: How can we sustainably manage groundwater?
What do you want to know about California’s new groundwater law? On the next Your Call, we’ll continue our weeklong series on California’s water crisis by talking about the state’s first-ever rules for pumping groundwater in California. Nearly 40 percent of California’s water comes from underground sources. About 30 million Californians rely on groundwater for their drinking water. But areas are being pumped faster than they are being replenished. How is groundwater managed now? And what changes should we expect? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
