Another dry winter worries California rice farmers who are planning for this year's crop. The state's harvest was down nearly 25 percent last year. And, it's not just water that worries growers.
California’s water supply continues to diminish. The water content in the Sierra snowpack is the worst it’s been this time of year since 1991. Water conservation rates are equally dismal, dropping dramatically in January.
(AP) - The California Department of Water Resources says it will carry out the winter's third survey of the Sierra Nevada's snowpack.
What little bit of rain California received in December and February was just enough to help reservoir storage. The Department of Water Resources announced it will increase water deliveries through the State Water Project.
The US Bureau of Reclamation says most farmers south of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta will face a second year with no water from the Central Valley Project. Some farmers and cities may receive more.
