What bothers me is seeing California sink deeper and deeper into doom without managers adopting products like watersavr that deliver way more bang for the buck.**
I blame three factors for this zombie response from water managers:
- They are terrified of making a mistake on a "new" idea. It's easier to watch reservoirs drop and say "it's a drought."
- They do not understand a technology that does not involve pipes and pumps.
- They do not need to worry about failure because no water managers have ever been fired for incompetence in California.***
* And takes 10+ years to put into operation. WaterSavr takes a a day (after less than a month to deliver) to put into use. It can be stopped --- with all product biodegrading -- in three days
** Wichita Falls, TX put it into use last year
*** Send me ANY story to this effect. Fraud and theft do not count.
**** OTPR has a simple rule: farmers (and corporations) need to share out the value of the water IF they're taking it from others
