Los Angeles sources most of its water from the San Joaquin River Delta and the Colorado River. Those in the water industry emphasize that supply is limited, noting that it will become increasingly difficult to continue growing the quantity of water available for Los Angeles County. As population increases, and climate change further decreases water availability, how will authorities at the local, regional, and state levels need to adapt in order to continue providing residents with the resource? What efforts toward conservation and efficiency are underway to address this? What role will local uses play?
