Drilling for Water

Tags

The San Diego Union Tribune, today, reports extensively on plans to possibly tap a huge underground aquifer to help quench San Diego’s thirst for water. Potentially, the aquifer may contain up to a million acre-feet of water. The only problem is that the water is 1500 feet below the surface. And, the effects on the land above (subsidence) are not well understood.

This is another example of plans to deplete an unsustainable source to feed our excessive demands for water.
