U.S. state of California is going through worst drought in its history. Water supplies are now at dangerously low levels. state government has introduced many laws to try to prevent water shortages. California farmers have stepped in to do their part in helping to conserve water. California's agriculture sector has agreed to cut back on its water use by 25 per cent. This will be on voluntary basis. agreement follows move by California's governor Jerry Brown to cut water use in cities by 25 per cent. This was introduced as emergency measure and it made many city residents angry. They did not want to be only people having to cut back on water.

California's water system serves over 30 million people and irrigates nearly six million acres of farmland. It is world's largest and most productive water system. It is also one of most difficult systems because too many people want too little water. There is great demand for water in state. Farmers say it is important they get water first because growing food is essential. However, some crops, like almond trees, need lot of water. People in cities say they need water most to be able to live. There is also demand from California's many golf courses and for swimming pools of wealthy people in state. California’s population will be almost 50 million people by year 2020.
