Rich Atwater of the Southern California Water Committee said the drought underscores the need to update the state's water system. The committee represents business, government, agriculture and water agencies and works to inform Southern Californians about water.
"We need a modern water system that allows us to capture water when it's available so we can store enough water to protect us during the dry periods," Atwater said.
