Essay: California-Environmental impact
The environmental impacts of such moves include a reduction in the amount of gravity water available naturally for use (Koomen & Stillwell, 2007, p. 26). The ground will be subjected to more pressure to yield more water and at the same time affecting the land topography of this region. These fears have ignited a lot of opposition from environmentalist who advocate for stopping of water exports to other locations in California.
Political influence has remained an obstacle to these calls, with most local authorities standing on promises that are never implemented (31). Biodiversity is slowly deteriorating because of the constant interruptions of the environment by excavations in search of water and construction of water points. These threats call for suitable laws that will regulate utilization of water as a resource whose usage affects land use.
