based on the current rate, when would you lose power generation?
Paul Rodriguez
Can you clarify ag water use as a percentage? Is this 70% of all water or is it 70% of net water after deducting environmental uses?

Rate changes through out seasons based on runoff from snow melt (pack changes annually) and evaporation from excessive heat - 20 years of drought and deficits can’t be erased in 1 year or one month. Example past 3 years rate accelerated by repeated poor monsoon, below average winter snowpack and increase evaporation from the warmest annual years on record - not just summer - same happening NorCal and Europe when consecutive years (2-3) significant drought after the 2014-16 drought Oroville) - then you have to factor rate of use that changes. An above average winter could slow rate or even net gain but weather (water year) accumulated impacts are prob most influence - weather pattern shifts or lack of it makes climate tends/extremes which are drier and warmer in SW US (more than rest of US). I saw presentations on 35 percent for environmental and 45 for agricultural then remaining is home business. Lots of room to reduce conserve besides your home. Not just storage issue but weather extremes like Jan-Mar 22

Will this recording be available and will it include the chats
Francis Mitalo
This may have been mentioned before I came into the meeting but considering that the drought has been around for a while and the future is a little uncertain in terms of rain, does this qualify the change of term from "drought" to "desertification"?
Joyce McIntire
Thank you Heather Dyer for your forward thinking and planning.
Chuck Conder
