In a current interview with local Valley farmer Mark Hutson, who gets his water from Deep Wells and Chowchilla Water District, he shares his information on future water restrictions. Hutson moves on to his thoughts about how over-pumping groundwater in California is nothing new. He believes there is a middle ground to be found in this situation. Westland's website states, "Water deliveries are metered to ensure maximum efficiency is used for every drop of water." “It was observed as far back as the 1920s,” Hutson said. “As a result, the state and federal water projects were designed and built to bring in surface water for farms and over-drafting stopped. In the late 1990s the water contracts were challenged by environmental groups and large amounts of surface water were diverted back to the rivers for the environment. Not surprisingly, over-drafting began again. This time however, more surface water will not be diverted back to the farms.
