Tulare County has confirmed their wells have run out of water, and so far hundreds of homes have no running water.
According to the LA Times, rumors are also spreading that Child Protective Services officials will begin taking children away from families who have no running water, although the county claims the rumor is false.
It begins: the collapse of California’s water aquifers
With this news, it is now official that the collapse of California’s water aquifers has begun. With each passing month and year, more and more wells will run dry across the state as California plummets into the desert conditions from which it once sprang.
Extreme drought now covers 82% of California, according to the National Drought Mitigation Center. (2) Fifty-eight percent of the state is in “exceptional drought.”
During the unfolding of this drought, California farmers and cities have siphoned unprecedented volumes of water out of the state’s underground aquifers. This is called “fossil water” and it can take centuries to regenerate. Once this fossil water is used up, it’s gone.
