It is my understanding that when the recent rains occurred on a weekend that brought around 12" of rain in different areas of northern California, that all of it went out the Sacramento River (and others) to the sea. That it was estimated to be about 3.1 billion gallons of water. If true, that apparently would have supported 1 million people for a year. Without the dams for conservation, and wise use of resources, how can we do so?
