Social Issues Project

Project Description

I chose to research drought in California, and how it is affecting the social, political, and economic life in the state.  I find this interesting because it is about California's waterways, which complexity interests me alot, and the importance water can have in all aspects of life.

Background

The state assembly has decreased the ammount of water in California's great Aqueduct that runs through the central valley, angering many farmers in the "dust bowl", many water supply companies have been making great efforts to limit the water use of homes, and the animals living in the Delta, where the aqueduct takes most of its water from, have been suffering due to the loss of fresh water.
