In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Research Fellow Isaac Orr talks with Dave Quast. Quast is the California Director of Energy In Depth. Quast and Orr discuss the a range of issues pertaining to California’s water supply.
It seems like everyone is talking about the drought in California. Environmental groups have been quick to blame hydraulic fracturing for California’s water woes. Last year, fracking used 70 million gallons of water, but this amount is miniscule when compared to the amount of water used for residential and agricultural purposes.
In this podcast, Quast and Orr talk about California’s water supply, including the impact of hydraulic fracturing, agriculture, diverting rivers for wildlife habitat restoration, and watering lawns in the desert have on the state’s water resources.
