Workers on a California farm may be able to rest easy knowing they won’t have to worry about being on the wrong side of a drought this summer.
The drought is expected to remain a major problem for many farmers throughout the rest of the year.
This week, the California Department of Water Resources released a new update on the state’s water infrastructure.
The agency estimates that the state has over 1.5 billion acre-feet of water remaining in its reservoirs and the water table is expected fall through mid-August.
The update said the state needs to increase its water storage by 20 percent to meet demand.
The drought, which started in mid-December, has caused farmers to shut down and farmers to abandon their operations, which have forced many to rely on private contractors to help them out.
The problem has caused a decline in water supplies in some areas, which has led to shortages and high water prices.
The drought is a natural disaster and will take a toll on many agricultural operations.
This is the third year in a row that farmers have reported experiencing drought conditions.
This time around, the drought has forced them to suspend operations, cutting off the only source of water for their operations.
“It is hard to say what will happen in the next few months, but this year we are seeing the impact of the drought on our farms,” said Kevin Ruppert, executive director of the California Water Resource Commission.
“The drought will not be a surprise to us, but the impact is likely to be even worse than it was last year.”
This year, California has experienced a record-breaking amount of rain, but some of the rainfall is expected back in late August and early September.
There are reports that farmers will experience a shortage of water due to the drought and some farmers may have to turn to other forms of irrigation to make up for the shortfall.
In the meantime, the Department of Transportation said that some parts of the state are experiencing extreme weather.
Road conditions in the state have worsened, and traffic conditions are expected to continue to worsen.
According to the department, the state expects to see an average of 6 to 12 inches of rain in California this summer, but it is not certain when or if the state will get that amount of rainfall.
