How is well water being regulated? Can you pump as much as you can afford? Is it allowable to flood irrigate with well water? What regulations are there for farmers to follow and who is there to enforce them?
The city of Fresno has water usage regulations and enforcement. What do we have for agricultural water conservation? Every day we hear about more new wells being dug and older wells being dug deeper. We also hear that the groundwater level is going down rapidly
I would think that flood irrigation of crops would not be allowed. Too much water is required when about the same thing could be accomplished with a drip system. Or, are we just going to pump out the well water until it is all gone? We all need water to survive, so we all need to be involved in conserving water. No individual or company is exempt when it comes to conserving water!
