California Water Restrictions...Should Bottle Water Companies Operate During The Drought?

In April of 2015 Jerry Brown the Governor of California issues water restrictions for the State of California. The restrictions call for a 25% reduction by all users in the state except farmers. Farmers are exempt because they are already under water restrictions. Trying to find a solution to this problem is going to be difficult and will require sacrifice. The use of water by agriculture and the bottle water industry is being scrutinized during this crisis. There has also been discussion on using higher prices to encourage water conservation. What do you think about this issue? Should there be limits on bottle water production during the drought? Should California consider eliminating some of its agricultural products to conserve water? Is it possible that water could become a commodity like oil and only be available to those who can afford to pay for it? Our lesson plan on this topic is a great way to introduce your student to the issues of water scarcity worldwide as well as in the United States.
