This article addresses the severity of Puerto Rico’s drought in comparison to the scarce water conditions in California. The situation in Puerto Rico Surpasses the issue of little rainfall, but it encompasses the weak economy and the lack of water storage availability.
“California’s drought is bad, but not this bad. For one thing, drinking water rationing would be unthinkable in California. In the limited areas of California that have run out of drinking water, domestic wells ran dry due to overuse by neighboring farmers—not due to a lack of total supply. Thanks to unimaginably ambitious public works projects in the past, California still has enough total water supply, it’s just not being allocated efficiently. Due to years of neglect, Puerto Rico is heading into this drought without much wiggle room.”
Puerto Rico’s drought seems to be heading in a downhill direction with little to no solutions in sight.
