    Drought

    Every Drop Counts
    By: Justin Park

    Have you noticed the choking restrictions on water usage in the year so far? Well, California has been experiencing a drought for the third year in a row. Water conservation laws have been spurting up all over, limiting water usage from watering the lawn to washing your car. The drought is undoubtedly a major factor of rising water and food prices and even unemployment.
    Residents living in Arcadia, as well as all other communities are advised to use less water and be increasingly conservative. The city of Arcadia has advocated its residents to adjust sprinkler timers, cover their pools to avoid extensive evaporation due to the hot sun, to sweep and mop driveways on the contrary of wasting gallons by hosing it down. Our city council also recommends watching everyday water uses such as brushing your teeth, cooking, washing the dishes, and using the toilet, the bath, and the shower. People living in Los Angeles County’s jurisdiction are required to restrict watering the lawn to two times a week and one day a week if the hot and dry weather intensifies.
    As a result of the drought, the City of Arcadia has recently obtained a $242,500 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency. The grant will be used to replace the existing wells currently located at Camino Real and Longley Way and will improve substantial factors such as increased water storage capabilities and improved safety and seismic reliability.
    California, can be described as the feet that hold up the United States because a staggering amount of food is originated from California, specifically, California's sprawling vast Central Valley. Across the Central Valley, towns face sever unemployment problems all branching from the drought. Most agricultural farmers are sticking to survival, focusing on low-labor and low-maintenance crops. During the year 2008, the drought losses added up to an amount of $300 million dollars but this year, researchers say, will reach an overwhelming amount of $2 billion dollars as a result of the three-year drought that is presumably still unfolding.
    Multiple cities around Arcadia and Los Angeles have set mandatory requirements on water usage and urge that their residents conserve every drop of water that they have in preparation of the drought that might last longer than everyone thinks. Amazingly, many people aren't affected by this drought, and some people do not know that California is experiencing one, besides, the water runs perfectly, and most can take a shower everyday. But little do people know that gradually, with every shower, and every session of dishwashing, it further depletes the ever-declining water source in our near empty reservoirs that is ever closing to a dangerously minimal amount.
    The state of California is in a phase of severe drought where every drop really does count. The only way that the state can solidify a new foundation to gradually increase our water supply again is when the people as a whole decide to conserve water in masses. Just think about it, every gallon of water counts, with every gallon people can water more crops, with more crops, the government can help feed more people, when the government can help feed more people then poverty can be avoided, without poverty, we can bypass unemployment. Without water, California will be in a critical state that will effect not only residents but relatively most everyone in the United States.

Senior Alex Wang says, "I do notice the drought and we do not go completely out of our way to conserve water, but we don't waste any water either, I do not see any major effects of the drought on the way we live yet, although that may be because we live in such an affluent community". While Senior Alisa Chiu mentioned, "Yes I notice the drought and in addition to the economic crisis, I guess it's increased the amount of people aware of the environmental problems today and in a few years we'll die without water and it is probable that we would need to ship water from somewhere else".
