I am speaking in regards to the article “With no relief from the drought in sight, water flow from the Mokelumne River to Lodi may dry up.” If the state were to begin rationing water, how could this affect Pacific Coast Producers? I know that during the summer when the season starts, the company uses a lot of water when canning the fruit.

Since there has not been a substantial amount of rain lately, I know it could affect farming and whether or not there will be anything to can at the plant. Since a good number of people rely on working at the cannery every season, how worried should these people be about the drought?
