In the News: El Niño

Here’s a quick round-up of some pertinent pieces on water that have been circulating in the news recently:

San Francisco Chronicle (September 27): Why El Niño won’t save us from the drought

”We’ve all seen the forecasts: there’s a 95 percent chance El Niño will hit the Northern Hemisphere this winter. For Californians, for whom the sound of rain has become an exciting novelty, the idea of a rainy season sounds like the promise of salvation. The drought will end, and we will be saved. Rain will certainly help, but it’s not what we really need to beat the drought. We need snow, and we might not get enough.  

“Most importantly, however, is the unprecedented lack of snow in the Sierra. Typically snow is California’s natural water storage system, accounting for two-thirds of the state’s fresh water. It slowly melts throughout the summer, running into rivers and aqueducts. This summer we had zero snowpack.”


Established in 1984, the Southern California Water Committee is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, public education partnership dedicated to informing Southern Californians about our water needs and our state’s water resources. Spanning Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, San Bernardino, Imperial, Riverside, Ventura and Kern Counties, the SCWC’s members include representatives from business, government, labor, agriculture, water agencies and the general public.
