Madera is the geographical center of California, and if our rainfall is less than normal by percentage points then that percentage should be the amount less delivery south of the pumps at the base of the Grapevine.

This would be the average of water delivered there since the first day of operation to last year by the California Aqueduct, and not by population or development.

Desalination plants should be built, and not marine study institutes. Funding for these plants south of the watershed on the Grapevine to the border, not by state funds.

No new tunnels.
