I found it ironic that there was an article mentioning new housing sites for 2,241 new housing units under RHNA while another article discusses a drought surcharge by EBMUD.

Obviously we are being challenged by water shortages in recent years. Adding more population in areas where water is limited seems counterproductive to me.
Did I miss something?
