POLL: Californians Paying Attention to Drought, Have Thoughts on What Should be Done
Posted Wednesday, April 16th 2014 @ 6am  by KFBK News

Californians are paying attention to the drought and have some definite opinions on what should be done.

Nearly all California voters -- a whopping 88 percent -- believe the state is undergoing a serious water shortage, that's according to a recent study by the Field Poll.

There is no clear consensus about whether the drought is being exacerbated by a storage issue or due to overuse of water by some.

By a 54 percent to 30 percent margin, most Californians believe agricultural users, who currently consume about three-quarters of the state's fresh water supply, can reduce their water use without creating real hardships by changing crops and using water more efficiently.
