IRVINE, Calif. (March 19, 2015) -- “Today the Governor said that if the drought continues, ‘there will be restrictions’ on water use by all Californians.  This may be interpreted by some to mean that so far, there haven’t been any restrictions placed on the state’s farmers.  In fact, California farmers and Californians living in some rural areas are the only people in the state who have had their water cut off.  Last year, the State Water Project only delivered 5 percent of the requested supply.  The federal Central Valley Project delivered no water at all to the San Joaquin Valley.  This year, the state project will deliver only 20 percent and the federal project is projecting another year of zero water delivered to the San Joaquin Valley.
