– Evidence of severe drought is all around us. As of yesterday morning, Clear Lake sat at -1.62 feet Rumsey. Many boat ramps have closed. Water availability has become a matter of significant statewide concern; all Californians have been encouraged to reduce water consumption by 15%
from 2020 levels.
“For some property owners dependent on private wells, the drought emergency has meant waking up to find they don’t have water to take a shower and meet very basic needs,” notes Moke Simon, Lake County’s District 1 Supervisor. “If your well is dry, you are not alone. The State wants to know about it, to ensure state and local officials and representatives understand how the drought is affecting private wells and surface water sources.”
596 reports related to household water supply shortage have been filed with the State so far this year, and 163 in the last 30 days.
