The Drought affects more than just California. An emergency state has been declared by Governor Kate Brown in nineteen counties in the state of Oregon, but that hasn’t stopped Nestle from trying to build a water-bottling plant on the side of the Columbia River. Protesters argue that a private corporation shouldn’t be allowed to suck up precious available water while communities suffer the effects of Drought.

Here in Southern California, conservative radio personality Steve Yuhas, who lives in the opulent community of Rancho Sante Fe, isn’t agreeable with the idea of the wealthy having to cut back on water consumption. In an interview with the Washington Post, Yuhas said, “We pay significant property taxes based on where we live. And no, we’re not all equal when it comes to water.”
