VIDEO: California’s water woes

leave a comment »

In recent months, the Glendale City Council as well as the city’s Glendale Water & Power commission have discussed the brewing water crisis facing the state.

In addition to the growing water shortage, crumbling levies at the Sacramento-San Joaquin Bay Delta could result in a major disaster for much of the state, state officials have said.

Although the delta is hundreds of miles north of Glendale, city officials say its reliability and ecosystem issues trickle down in a big way to affect a significant portion of the city’s water supply.

If you are interested in learning more about the water issues facing the state, there was a special report on last night’s “60 Minutes” program on CBS. Click here to watch.
