This week’s rain was a drop in bucket compared to what LA and the entire state need to make up for years of drought. But maybe if the rainfall were to be augmented, say, by a ton of water shipped in from a pristine Alaskan lake, we’d feel a little relief. This week, U.S. Representative Janice Hahn got together with reps from the Ports of LA and Long Beach, the Metropolitan Water District, and two other water districts to talk about making that happen, discussing options for taking an Alaskan company up on their offer to send a tanker full of water from a non-drought-stricken Alaskan lake to Southern California, says the Daily Breeze.
