If the lack of water is so important, why haven’t the boneheads in charge of Water Resources sent a lot of excavators, bulldozers and equipment to Folsom Lake?
Cutting down the hills in that lake would increase future water storage dramatically. A 3-cubic-yard bucket would add about 605 gallons of water with each scoop. This is a lot cheaper than building a new reservoir.
