The drought has had adverse impacts on the Kings Basin’s surface and groundwater supplies. The majority of the irrigated farmland within the Basin have received shortened or no surface water supplies for the growing season. In addition, both urban and agricultural groundwater pumping has increased dramatically exasperating the overdrafted aquifer that supplies the region. Environmental needs are also impacted with less flows in the Kings River. Many of the region water agencies are engaged in activities to lessen the impacts of the drought.  The Kings Basin Water Authority drought survey provides information on local agencies drought impacts and water conservation activities taken  in response to the drought.
