If you live in Kern County, your water supply is critical to your everyday life. Whether you work at an auto shop, a retail store, a school or a farm, having an adequate water supply is important for your job and your lifestyle. Since Kern County receives just about seven inches of rain a year, it’s important that we maintain our water supply from the northern parts of California, plus conserve what we have here.
It t will take about 11 trillion gallons of water — around 1.5 times the maximum volume of the largest U.S. reservoir — to recover from California’s continuing drought, according to NASA satellite data analysis.
