The importance of water in California is paramount in all activities present in each category of natural and modern civilized society. Such integrated uses and the high water demand that is felt during a drought can turn one Californian against another. Realizing our value for each other, especially during a drought, is fundamental to our success.

Dividing up water in California is a lot like sitting at the kitchen table and serving your favorite pie. Everybody wants a slice. If we find ourselves one slice short, we find a way to make it work. Food, water and habitat sit at this table and each is a part of the same family........ ours.
