Porterjp-articleLarge.jpg

On the May 12th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the efforts to tackle the state's historic drought. January was the driest month in the state since record keeping began in 1895. Wells are running dry, and the Sierra snowpack is far below normal. How is the state responding to this rapidly growing crisis? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
