The Pacific Institute’s new report and video, California Farm Water Success Stories, analyzes successful examples of sustainable water policies and practices to demonstrate how innovative growers and irrigation districts are already beginning to move California toward more equitable and efficient water management and use. These practices are making a difference and there are steps, both in policy and on-the-ground, that can to help further them. Viable alternatives to traditional approaches can help California meet today’s water management challenges.
Integrating practices in these success stories into long-term policy and planning could lead to a very different California—one where efficient, equitable, and sustainable water uses are the norm, rather than the dream.
