Update – California water crisis hits Ventura County

Update to Citizen Journal’s Article: https://citizensjournal.us/californias-water-crisis-hits-ventura-county/

As update to our article Mohammed Hasan of Hasan Consultants http://hasanconsultants.com/ noted a recent article appearing in the Los Angeles Times where Mr. Michael Hilzik suggests that among other things, uprooting of nut trees that use so much water in orchards should be undertaken to save water.  Mr. Hansan put out a statement saying: “If we store enough water by capturing, we can avoid such drastic actions.”  He has proposed to several agencies and the Ventura County Farm Bureau the use of inflatable/plastic temporary dams being used to capture rain water and then diverting the water into storage for later use. So far, his proposal has been left on the table.

Desalinization plants solves all the water problems. The rest of the world successfully uses them but not the US. Too much profit for the 1% by exploiting crisis.

None of these people know what they are talking about!

Simple: build regular dams and build pipe lines from the North and we will never have a water shortage again. No sense in letting rivers just run into the ocean — don’t need any more water there! Duh.

Maybe you need to study Mr. Hasan’s idea more closely. It could be implemented very quickly and cheaply while the bureaucrats from Sacramento to Santa Monica are arguing.
