Dried Up

Well, this doesn't sound promising:
The Fresno Bee says dropping reservoir levels across the state are leading to struggles over water set aside via the Central Valley Project, a federally-run network of reservoirs, pumping plants and canals.
That includes about 340,000 acre-feet of water stored at San Luis Reservoir.
As federal officials consider the lingering drought, they have declined to rule out the possibility of taking the carried-over water for other purposes outlined by the CVP.
Farmers and lawmakers of both parties are urging the Interior Department not to redirect the water.
Water, water, nowhere?
