Feds announce zero water allocations for north of Delta and Valley ag

Drought-pipes

As expected, state and federal water allocations from the Sacramento Delta are zero for Central Valley agriculture in California. Stockpile food now. Food prices are sure to rise.

The California State Water Project previously announced zero percent allocations. The federal Central Valley Water Project has just done the same. There will be no federal water allocations north of the Delta, none for Central valley agriculture, and 50% for municipal and industrial.

Zero percent allocations have never happened before. No one knows what comes next. Farmers in the fertile, enormous Central Valley (which provides large amounts of food to the nation) will fallow hundreds of thousands of acres. Without allocated water, their only sources are whatever is stockpiled in local reservoirs (not much) and wells, which are being drilled ever deeper and draining aquifers.
