Stealing Water for Survival

People in California seem to be getting desperate when it comes to how much water they have. There are people who are now stealing water in order to have enough for their families. Water restrictions are in place because officials in the state believe that there won’t be much of a supply in the next few years. The state has been in a drought for about four years, but that doesn’t mean that people have to steal water. If everyone would listen to what they are being asked to do, then there might be enough water for everyone until officials think of another solution. How can a state be in a drought in the first place since there is a large ocean right next door? Onlookers like James Dondero think there should be some way that the state can tap into that water supply so that people will at least be able to have options.
