At drought-stricken Ft. Irwin in California, engineers have cut base water use by one-third

A new $100-million water-treatment plant will tap underground aquifers for the 26,000 people on the base, which covers an area larger than Rhode Island. “Without water, we have no mission,” said Muhammad Bari, director of public works. “We have to be ready to face the impacts from climate change.” (Gina Ferazzi / Los Angeles Times)
