that first part seems somewhat odd, as it would likely help moderate and encourage ground water to have a higher percentage available to be held back. as it will eventually get into the creeks/rivers eventually.
the second part i would agree with, because by damming those sorts of waterways you would likely be interfering with fish migrations or perhaps raising the temperature of the water.

that makes sense, but those who get there first in a situation where supply is declining would be those who would get it. sounds like eventually there will be rationing when enough people want to draw on it.

for the longer term i think the ground water situation would benefit from a higher percentage of capture of rainfall. has anyone tried to increase that percentage?

    31 (5555556,C) on my front porch at some time during the small hours. Made it up to 46 today, which is more typical of our overnight lows. Not unusual for this part of the peninsula but infrequent. Two-to-four such "cold waves" usually occur each year but they're generally of short duration. Be colder tonight with no cloud cover; weather geek's going on about temps in high 20s. Everything that was covered survived nicely but tomorrow (Wed, 8 Jan) morning may have a different story. More typical lows in high 50s–low 60s "should" return within a day or two and the really frost-tender stuff (basil, peppers) can go back outside.
