There is a new report out from UC Davis and The Nature Conservancy about California’s water supply, titled: “Expanding California’s water supply: You can’t store what isn’t there.”
The study makes the case that water storage shouldn’t be viewed as isolated projects, but rather as part of
larger systems or portfolios of actions. It states that at most CA could utilize 5-6 million acre feet of additional ground and surface water storage capacity, but probably no more than that due to limits in precipitation and the ability to move water through the system.
