Governor Newsom Announces Water Strategy For a Hotter, Drier California

Sacramento, CA...California’s Water Supply Strategy outlines actions needed now to invest in new sources, transform water management. Without action, state officials believe extreme weather could diminish California’s water supply by up to 10% by 2040. Hotter and drier weather conditions spurred by climate change could reduce California’s water supply by up to 10% by the year 2040. To replace and replenish what we will lose to thirstier soils, vegetation, and the atmosphere, Governor Gavin Newsom on Thursday announced California’s latest actions to increase water supply and adapt to more extreme weather patterns caused by climate change.








Thursday’s announcement follows $8 billion in state investments over the last two years to help store, recycle, de-salt and conserve the water it will need to keep up with the increasing pace of climate change, generating enough water in the future for more than 8.4 million households by 2040.

The actions, outlined in a strategy document published by the Administration called “California’s Water Supply Strategy, Adapting to a Hotter, Drier Future” calls for investing in new sources of water supply, accelerating projects and modernizing how the state manages water through new technology.

This approach to California’s water supply management recognizes the latest science that indicates the American West is experiencing extreme, sustained drought conditions caused by hotter, drier weather. The warming climate means that a greater share of the rain and snowfall California receives will be absorbed by dry soils, consumed by thirsty plants, and evaporated into the air. This leaves less water to meet the state’s needs.

“The best science tells us that we need to act now to adapt to California’s water future. Climate change means drought won’t just stick around for two years at a time like it historically has – extreme weather is the new normal here in the American West and California will adapt to this new reality,” Governor Newsom said at the Antioch Brackish Desalination Project. “California is launching an aggressive plan to rebuild the way we source, store and deliver water so our kids and grandkids can continue to call California home in this hotter, drier climate.”

Governor Newsom tours the Antioch Brackish Desalination Project and welcomes his new Infrastructure Advisor, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

To help make up for the water supplies California could lose over the next two decades, the strategy prioritizes actions to capture, recycle, de-salt and conserve more water. These actions include:

Creating storage space for up to 4 million acre-feet of water, which will allow us to capitalize on big storms when they do occur and store water for dry periods
Recycling and reusing at least 800,000 acre-feet of water per year by 2030, enabling better and safer use of wastewater currently discharged to the ocean.
Freeing up 500,000 acre-feet of water through more efficient water use and conservation, helping make up for water lost due to climate change.
Making new water available for use by capturing stormwater and desalinating ocean water and salty water in groundwater basins, diversifying supplies and making the most of high flows during storm events.
These actions are identified broadly in the Newsom Administration’s Water Resilience Portfolio – the state’s master plan for water released in 2020 – but they will be expedited given the urgency of climate-driven changes. To advance the infrastructure and policies needed to adapt, the strategy enlists the help of the Legislature to streamline processes so projects can be planned, permitted and built more quickly, while protecting the environment.

Governor Newsom tours the Antioch Brackish Desalination Project.

Over the last three years, at the urging of the Governor, state leaders have earmarked more than $8 billion to modernize water infrastructure and management. The historic three-year, $5.2 billion investment in California water systems enacted in 2021-22 has enabled emergency drought response, improved water conservation to stretch water supplies, and enabled scores of local drought resilience projects. The 2022-23 budget includes an additional $2.8 billion for drought relief to hard-hit communities, water conservation, environmental protection for fish and wildlife and long-term drought resilience projects.

It’s simple Gavy, build more water storage, by the way , they didn’t tell Gavy that the guy on the right just peed in that glass before he took a drink!

    Hey dumbass. Read the article. Newsom wants to create storage space for 4 million acre feet of water.
    That means dams, dumbass.
    4 million acre feet of storage is roughly equivalent to 2 New Melones reservoirs.
    That's a lot of dams. And Newsom is committed to building them.
    You'd know that if you actually read, instead of shooting your ignorant dotard mouth off.

        Considering 85%-90% of our northern California water goes to valley farms, it's highly doubtful.
        However, you truly know what you're talking about when it comes to heads up butts.

          "Considering 85%-90% of our northern California water goes to valley farms, it's highly doubtful.
          However, you truly know what you're talking about when it comes to heads up butts."

          That's all changing as China is no longer buying the excess of nuts and wine. Nor is Japan buying the fruit and berries grown here that have to be individually wrapped in cartons like eggs for their liking. Farmers are removing the trees and selling their water rights, once that water is being used for housing it will not be back for farming ever. They will just build more on the farmland creating more water shortage and no actual food.

          No crops should be grown for export out of CA. or America in this state that has already overbuilt on a finite amount of water.

          As for more Dams, they have not fixed the ones we already have that are in danger of failing just like our bridges. Remember a few years ago they were all going to be fixed? Why build more that don't fill, when you have not fixed the ones we already have that don't fill, and are in danger of structural failure?

    We'd be better off building canals from the Columbia River to the Sacramento River.
    Or from the Missouri River to the Colorado River.

New Melones does not hold over 4 million acre feet of water. I believe it's capacity is in the neighborhood of 2.3 million acre feet.

    Reservoirs are built to hold runoff.
    The state's Reservoirs are holding 20%-40% of capacity due to lack of rain.
    10 more Reservoirs aren't going to hold water ghat isn't there.
