Groundwater loss prompts more California land sinking
« on: September 02, 2018, 01:35:55 PM »
Despite higher-than-normal amounts of rain in early 2017, the large agricultural and metropolitan communities that rely on groundwater in central California experienced only a short respite from an ongoing drought.

When the rain stopped, drought conditions returned and the ground has continued to sink, by up to a half-meter annually, according to a new Cornell study in Science Advances.

You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
