SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Some 50 million gallons of water were lost after an act of vandalism damaged an inflatable dam near San Francisco, the local Oakland Tribune newspaper reported on Friday.
The loss comes as the state is in its fourth year of a devastating drought that has prompted Governor Jerry Brown to impose the state's first-ever mandatory cutbacks in urban water use, up to 36 percent in some communities.
Alameda County Water District officials told the newspaper that the agency reported the incident, which caused the water to run into the San Francisco Bay, to police around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday.

There's got to be a way to get some of that flood water from Texas into reservoirs in CA.

There are millions of unneeded gallons of fresh water dumped into the sea in the state of Washington and our governor is wasting billions of dollars on a stupid train that nobody will use when those funds and resources should used to build a fresh water pipeline to divert that unneeded water to California's reseviours.

A pipeline from Washington to California is also infrastructure, but infrastructure that would serve a real purpose, rather than infrastructure that exists purely to be a legacy for a washed up has been 4 term democrat governor.

wasn't...FU bullet train.

Tell me about it. My mother was telling me yesterday the lake her ship floats (Lake Manistee) in is nearly overflowing right now.
