California's water crisis has been years in the making, the consequence of shifting weather patterns, economic forces and lifestyle choices. Five primers from the independent digital media project Water Deeply, along with an interactive timeline with key benchmarks from the drought’s genesis until now, provide basic, important information about many facets of the drought and how we are dealing with it. Those stories have been posted individually, and links to all of them are included here.
