This isn’t a question that many homeowners are asking today but could be in the near future.
As you well know California is in the midst of a severe drought that seems to be getting worse by the day. For some residents in California, they literally have to walk a mile to get a sip of water!

There is a total of 88 active large fires as we speak right now. Here is a quick breakdown of the states currently affected.
- Idaho: 21
- Washington State: 17
- California: 16
- Montana: 14
- Oregon: 11
Heck, this fire season has been so bad, President Obama has declared a state of emergency for Washington State.

The seriousness of the water situation across the west can not and should not be underestimated.
