The New York Times, using data based on numbers reported by about 400 water districts to the California Water Resources Control Board; David Sunding, University of California, Berkeley; Pacific Institute; and University of California, Los Angeles,has published an interactive map with information about water conservation and the cuts that have been proposed throughout the state.
This is the Internet at its best. The map has three tabs; the size of the proposed cuts, the change in consumption, and the daily gallons per capita.
After selecting the map you want to use, you get circles for each water district whose color and size indicate the information — including the city of Hollister and the Sunnyslope Water District. Run your mouse over the circle and the actual data displays, Go slow in areas, like ours, with more than one district and each will come up separately.
These cuts have not been adopted, but they are the recommend numbers that will be considered by the board One map has the two-year record of change for the reporting water districts.
Interesting and informative.
