The news on water is key as we reported on the nexuses between fracking-waste water disposal-water. The drought impact is related to the water levels within the areas effected. The focus for “Water managers say conservation needed in 2014” has an impact on energy, efficiency and vegetation.
Seattle Pi indicates, “the State water officials are warning that low water levels in reservoirs across the state should be a warning that conservation measures might be necessary to get through next year. With little chance for record-rain conditions to develop in the Pacific this winter, the Fresno Bee reports that (http://bit.ly/1ap2YBP) the state could be headed for trouble.”
“Mike Cowin of the state Department of Water Resources said a drought has not been declared, but water managers will face a challenge if 2014 is dry. Pine Flat Reservoir in the Fresno County foothills is at 16 percent capacity and most of the state’s other large water-storing reservoirs are well below average.”
California is coming off one of the driest winters on record. This knowledge can force application and new thinking on effective methods for harnessing knowledge and technologies to render water solutions. The nexuses of water, waste water and climate effects pose new constructs on how cities, utilities and facilities managers frame new ideas when drought persists within climate change.
Along with energy, water conservation and production have connectivity to a smarter future to meet the demands for power, performance and security.
