Water Storage in California

U.S. Water News:
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, alluding to the drastic changes global warming could have on the state's water supply, is proposing spending $4.5 billion to create two reservoirs and store more water in groundwater aquifers.

The items are a key aspect of the governor's $43.3 billion bond plan, which he revealed during his state-of-the-state address. One of the proposed reservoirs would be in a valley about 60 miles north of Sacramento, while the other would be near Fresno.

The projects are supported by farmers but opposed by many Democrats and environmentalists.
