Where did our water go?


I was thinking about the fact that one of our wells stopped producing enough water to keep up with our relatively low consumption of 1,000 gallons per day (typical US family of 4 uses 400) and gazed off into the distance. Hmmm, they seem to have plenty of water down there. Damn gravity. Found this article that explains how the CA wine industry transitioned from deep rootstock (which can be dry farmed) to shallow, irrigation dependent rootstock in the 80’s. Good plan…not. #shortsitedpriorities #externalities
