- Space is the Limit for Sierra Nevada Snowpack Stats (6/28/2018) - After more than a century of attempting to measure the Sierra snowpack, with less than accurate results, NASA has developed a new technology that can provide the “snow-water equivalent,” or the total volume of water stored in the watershed at that point.  NASA wants to take it one step further and measure the snowpack from space globally with a project known as “SnowEx.” Measuring the melting snowpack supplies from the Sierra Nevada is critical in understanding water supply in California. The mountain range stretches 400 miles along the southeast border of California suppling up to a third of the [...]
- Clean Clothes vs. Daily Shower – Law May Require Residents to Choose (6/28/2018) - California’s Governor Jerry Brown has recently signed two bills into law, Senate Bill 606 and Assembly Bill 1668, that focus on decreasing per-person water usage.
