  • What brought state to this point

    • Failure to manage ground and surface water together (aquifer drawdown)

    • Over allocation of use dependent rights based flood irrigation

    • (technological efficiencies reduced recharge of aquifer)

    • Needs of fish

      • Tribal law suits

      • Environmental law suits

    • Four years of drought
