California Drought Drilling Boom
Jorge Vargas, a foreman for Maggiora Brothers Drilling Inc., drills an 800-foot-deep water well at an almond farm in Chowchilla, Calif., on Friday, April 4, 2014. In California�s drought, well drillers are experiencing a boom in business because farmers are relying more on ground water to irrigate their crops. (AP Photo/Scott Smith)
