Cali Water Reserves Will Collapse Within One Year

According to Jay Famiglietti, a senior water scientist at NASA at Caltech, writes that "...the state has only one year of water supply left in its reservoirs, and our strategic backup supply, groundwater, is rapidly disappearing. California has no contingency plan for a constant longlasting drought..." This is very worrisome.

These are the frightening facts. Groundwater pumping rates are excessive and not sustainable.Rainfall is not falling and wells are running dry. California is the land of excessive everything. High income tax, high crime rate, high rent and high waterusage. The state is running out of easy jobs, easy money and access to cheap water . Water is about to become more costly than diamonds, any metals, petroleum or drugs!

In the next year, either California will have to build desalination plants and/or water will be transported in from other places. Either way, water will become a very expensive commodity. It will be costly to get the salt out or truck it in. Water and utility bills will become outrageous and there will be a mass exodus from the sunshine state. Homes and businesses will sit unsold and will be handed back to banks or simply abandoned because extreme water conservation will become the norm or water bills will be so outrageous that the average american family cannot afford to stay in Cali.

With the coming water shortage,many families have to look for other sources of water. Many have access to streams, creeks, springs and runoff water, even contaminated toilet water in extreme cases of emergency. There are many water purification straws and water filter straws that are available for use by one person or an entire family. One of these filter straws that both purifies and filters VOC's, heavy metals, chemicals and bacteria,viruses and parasites and even chlorine,

Municipal Water Treatment Facilities Are Poor in Management and Planning

A major concern for the U.S. population is our old and aging water treatment facilities and pipelines. In 2013, The American Society of Civil Engineers gave our water facilities a grade of "D" which means there is a overwhelming lack of confidence in its ability to perform adequately.

Our population has continued to grow madly and our municipalities have added more pipes and pipelines to their already overtaxed systems. The ability to service more people on these old pipelines is increasingly harder to do regardless of the new pipes going in. The main infrastructure can be 95 years old or more. In some of the oldest cities in this beautiful nation, some pipelines date back to the Civil War.

Each time a line of piping is put into the ground and joined with the old piping or a repair is made, the risk of toxic material entering grows with each new breach of those pipes. Your local officials are risking a potential water crisis and they have to take that risk. This is a utmost important concern for those individuals because they know that time is not their friend and it is their responsibility to deliver clean drinking water to millions of people every single day, 365 days a year with no break in delivery. Consumption of water does not halt just because the water main cannot deliver it.

It is our responsibility to keep our own bodies healthy and to be aware that when a breach of the water system is known, a plan B should already have been prepared and be ready to initiate at any given time. One of the strategies used by many is the inclusion of a water survival straw or water filter straw in their emergency preparedness kit or survival kit. It is also referrred to as a Bug Out Bag. Having and using a water survival straw or water purification straw during times of water main breaks, repairs or expansions prevent accidental consumption of impurities, chemicals and bacteria that are toxic and harmful to the body. This survival straw will become one of the most important additions to your survival kit.

The declining quality of drinking water in the U.S. has been thrust into a spiraling cyclone of decreased funding, mismanaged accounting and a general decline in oversight of repair and maintenance. When a wave of socialization allowed the federal government to take over the privatized industry of water companies, the decline started at that very moment due to mismanagement, lack of planning and lack of funding which allowed the quality of tap water to drop dramatically and the cost to rise.

If a true disaster hit the U.S. whcih affects our water supplies and sources, federal and local officials are not prepared to deliver safe drinking water to their citizens. Many tragic recent events have shown us that we cannot depend on the government for immediate help. Rule of thumb is to have three days supplies for each person in your home. A good measure is 6 gallons per person, per day (drinking/meal prep/bathing). If the ground water is somehow impacted by chemicals and oil from nearby businesses, it contaminates the water and becomes unusable. Depending on the federal government both before and after a major catastrophe is a major risk that you don't and shouldn't have to take.

There are many exciting developments in water purification techniques that will insure that you and your family have safe, available drinking water when you want it and when you need it. Prepare now for the worst and expect the best is thesafest policy for your survival and safety.
