Anderson Reservoir at just 12% of capacity.

It was drained this year for seismic repairs.
It will be empty for ten years.

A bad time during out emergency drought conditions.

Time to consider desalinization.

Your water situation must be worrying. Excellent shot of the current situation.

Wow, how worrying, great documentary image.

An unsettling sight. I can see more desalination plants in our future.

This certainly won't help the water situation, but best for the future.

Who drains a reservoir during a drought?
Pierre Martin30-Aug-2021 10:35
not the best situation in a drought period and out of service for ten years, wow!
Steven Jusczyk30-Aug-2021 05:57
Not the best planning, a scary sight.

A sign of the times in the west, Bryan. We have half the rain as normal.
