NBC Investigates: California Looks towards Israel to solve her water woes

An el Nino year isn’t going to be enough to rescue California from four years of drought. Its been estimated that California  will need more than 11 trillions of water just to catch up. That translates into an inch a day for 13 years.

NBC’s investigative unit has determined that the water shortage will not be solved by rain alone.
They have traveled to Israel looking for ways to quench California’s thirst.

What NBC has learned is that it took a dramatic policy change for Israel to achieve water security. By treating water as a national priority,  Israel now produces 20 % more water than its population can use.  An aggressive water management  strategy that includes advanced water recycling,  efficient irrigation techniques,  rain catchment systems at schools and other buildings, and desalination plants, coupled with conservation and advanced leak detection, created a system that now can withstand years of drought

Currently, California lags behind Israel in terms of water use efficiency. A wet winter will not be enough to solve California's water woes.
