Why weren't priorities implemented decades ago?

Re "California can expand its water supply -- a lot" (Viewpoints, June 10): Wait a minute - if the article's water-saving claims are true, why weren't the four proposed priorities implemented decades ago? It's not as though no one noticed that the state doesn't have enough water to deal with its periodic droughts. It can't be a lack of money.

And where is the Department of Water Resources' plan for assuring the state has enough water to meet its needs? Meeting water needs is a lot more important than building a questionable high-speed rail system. Will we have to wait for a real crisis to see some action in dealing with the State's chronic water shortages?
