Spain: The Battle Over Water

Spain: The Battle Over Water

Deutsche Welle (Aug. 21, 2013) — As a result of the economic crisis, many municipalities in Spain have sold their public water utilities to private companies. Now some local communities are finding out that the water supply networks are no longer being maintained properly and that water quality is on the decline. By the end of the year, about 60 percent of water utility management will be partly or entirely in private hands, making Spain the frontrunner in water privatization within Europe. Some experts are already calling it a "water bubble, and communities that are still trying to sell their water utilities are no longer able to obtain top prices. Now some communities are trying to regain public control over their water supply.

California's Intensifying Drought Means Paying Up for Avocados

California's Intensifying Drought Means Paying Up for Avocados

TheStreet (May 16, 2014) — California produces over 250 different crops. It is the sole producer of 12 commodities including almonds, artichokes, dates, figs, olives and walnuts, according to the state's Department of Water Resources. The department found that after a near-record dry winter, the statewide snowpack's water content was only 18% of average for May 1. As the snowpack normally provides about a third of water for California's farms and cities, the department says half-full reservoirs will not be significantly replenished by a melting snowpack this spring and summer. That does not bode well for the state's agriculture. Video provided by TheStreet
