Having struggled to manage water for the last 30 years the state need reforms so as o benefits the economy and the environment. This is because the water network consisting of the dams, canals levees, and other treatment plants were not constructed according to any plan or visions which will govern them (Garrigues, 1905). For this reason California has been developing their water system depending on the rising population (Libecap, 2007). The state has been vulnerable in terms of food stability due to lack of complex plans to manage their water system. The state is experiencing a divided climate with the rainforest of the Pacific falling on the Northwest and the arid desert falling on the Southwest. This complex mixture of climate results to a drought of 6-7 months annually. Rainfall usually ends by May or April and would be seen back in November (Godfrey, 2005). Most of the precipitation occurs during winter which is not so ideal for food production since it is normally accompanied with large storms which are usually destructive. In the olden days water management adopted a laissez faire water management style (Mulholland, 2000). However, when the Gold Rush set in it was necessary that water allocation laws be enacted. With the Gold Rush it was necessary that the State develop a food reserve program. However, when people shifted from gold to agricultural production California’s supreme had to structure enact laws regarding water management (California Department of Fish and Game, 2008).
California Water Foundation has been developing an interactive dimensional model to visually depict the challenges of water management. Currently the department of water resources is responsible for the management and protection of California’s water. In addition to this the agency works together with other agencies to benefit, protect and restore the natural

The history of water management is as old as the history of humankind. Most of the civilization in the human history has evolved around bountiful rivers whether it is the Mesopotamia around the Tigris and Euphrates or the Indus Valley civilization around the Indus River.
It possesses matchless properties that have not known to be found in any other existing matter to date. The planet Earth that man so very proudly owns is composed of about 70% of water. Much of the land that is present elsewhere is also covered with ice which again is frozen water only.
I have had this experience first-hand. In our residential area, we rely on the privately owned water sources, and water is tested three times a year to ensure that it is safe for human consumption. As such, we do not experience the effects of contaminated water.
The same would also be said in instances were there would be a lack of water in the given environment that would also lead to problems that would need to be addressed in order to aid the general populous in the surrounding area, as well as any other regions that may be impacted
India is yet to achieve the optimum water supply level as studies paint a grim picture of water supply in India. Recent research has pointed towards the lack of adequate water supply in many Indian towns. Government, community-based organizations, non-governmental organizations along with global organizations play the great role in ensuring.
Both the short and long-term problems can be overcome through working to restore the situations, taking preventive measures besides coming up with sound policies to safeguard the existing ecosystem. This is because there are no known short-term solutions to diminish
