Tell Governor Jerry Brown: Take bold action to overhaul our broken water system
California is facing a drought of historic proportions, and while individuals are being forced to reduce their water usage, big industries are pumping more groundwater than our state can supply.
We need a 21st Century water system that adapts to the realities of climate change and is in harmony with nature, farmers, cities, and manufactures.
Join us and our partners at Food & Water Watch to ask Governor Jerry Brown to show historic leadership during this crisis and develop a sustainable, environmentally sound water system that balances our state’s water use with its realistic water supply.
SIGN THE PETITION to tell Governor Jerry Brown:
“We believe your executive action to reduce urban water use is in the right direction, but it is not enough. Industry demands and outdated water rules have contributed to an unsustainable system that allocates more water than our state could ever possibly supply. This is your chance to write your legacy in the history books as a drought hero who took bold action to realign our water needs with our water supply and create a new water system that can serve the state for the next 100 years or more. Please have the courage to fundamentally reform our water system."
