There are possibilities to secure long term fixes. Conservation of fresh water, check water piping (fix leaky water pipe infrastructure), Fix/replace faucets, incentives to upgrade to modern appliances (dishwasher, washer, using heat-on-demand copper piping vs old tech water heaters) and upgrade/replace old toilets and showerheads. That being said - we can use nearby open land to provide solar and thermal heated water processing and feed 1/2 the fresh water to the Salton sea and 1/2 water to be sold to local cities/farms. Then we improve the recycling of water and use the grey water on updated golf courses, city parks, school parks etc. Drought resistant plants, trees and smart watering with modern sprinklers that are computer controlled. WaterX will be coming out with best practices from around the USA and around the world. DO NOT USE ARTIFICIAL TURF - it is bad regarding Greenhouse GASES and is unhealthy compared to redoing your landscaping to less lawn and more natural plants/trees. There are a lot of innovations out there. WE CAN BRING THEM together in CALIFORNIA - Innovate do not "fearigate". Golden State has open, creative and intelligent minds and people that care about the health of our surroundings. We can do it smartly.
