In Arizona you are not allowed to empty and refill your pool during a water shortage. It has never been bad enough for the gov. to crackdown on maintaining the level of the pool. Considering the amount of water that evaporates from pools, I've no doubt it is on the drawing board if things get bad enough. It will hit pretty hard as plaster cracks when left in the sun without water. Lotta people are going to be tempted to cheat a little if it comes to that.

I would post empty stock dam pics but it's too depressing.

It's what they use to anchor the docks at the marinas.

They'll be suffocating or already are, and the warm water will "boil" them soon. It's the same at my close by local reservoir. It'll be just a small dry river channel soon.

Every summer now is hotter and dryer than any others on record.

That is CA for ya. I've known situations where the state told people to NOT water their lawns or it was a $500 fine...
on the other end, the City or County told the same people, if their lawns were not green and mowed, it was a $500 fine...

In Oregon, I have a pool, water the lawn daily, and run one of my cars thru the local car wash at least 3 to 4 times a week.

Lack of water isn't a problem here.. Oregon's government is screwed up..... but California's so much more.

Odds are there is a bit of it down there. I had a friend who lived above one of the arms on an old gold mine property. Lived in the mine office which was converted to a house. Still had side by side stone/gravel sluices on the seasonal creek outside the mine entrance. They'd dump their diggings in there and wait for a rain with the water directed down one side, sluice for awhile, then switch sides and pick the gold from the first side.

So I have no doubt there's likely a bit down there at the bottom of those arms of the reservoir. Likely not far from wherever a creek empties in.

We're not doing well here either. I just checked the water year number today and we're at just about 1/2 of normal, a little lower actually, and the new water year starts in 23 days. No rain in the forecast to speak of for the next week either.

They hauled a lot of dirt when the spillway broke. Damn right there’s gold in there.

Yep, lots of gold there, and under highway 20/49 in the Grass Valley area.

Thanks. She's doesn't have a pretty face, so I have her turned to see a hip and a hint of ass.
