The Richmond Confidential offered a good read Monday about how the East Bay is handling the ongoing drought.
On Jan. 17, Gov. Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency in response to the state’s driest weather in its 163-year history. The governor asked California residents and businesses to voluntarily cut their water consumption by 20-percent.
The Confidential explains why the East Bay is in a better position than other California areas, and warns that the drought could increase water and food prices.
