It's a Saturday afternoon at Foothill Records and the regular clientele is starting to trickle in: local music enthusiasts looking for a rare used vinyl record, or maybe even a CD. Carol Schofield sits in a chair behind the register, shouting out to customers to ask how they're doing. Most seem to know what they're looking for, and one regular informs her that he's going to look in the back room of the store. A young man drops a Doors LP onto the countertop and waits for her to inspect it. Price labels are absent from the majority of the stock, and Schofield typically makes a deal with the customer once they bring their purchases to the front.

Supplying water to thousands of homes and buildings in a semi-arid climate threaded by dwindling river systems is no small task. Foothill residents currently get less than half their water from local groundwater basins and canyon runoff. The remaining 60% is imported from faraway sources such as the Sacramento/San Joaquin Bay/Delta Watershed and the Colorado River, and supply is at the mercy of drought conditions and regulations occurring hundreds of miles away. Now local officials with the Foothill Municipal Water District have a plan to create more locally sourced water.
