ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the effort of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California to solve the crisis of drying in Los Angeles, California. The water district is facing a growing water crisis in the area. It was emphasized that the water district will have to ration water to its member agencies, raising the specter of a watery version of the country's electricity crisis. Furthermore, it is stated that managers talk about the diversified water-supply portfolio that tends to interplay between its water conversation program and its massive expansion of storage projects.
