California is rarely associated with the Sahara, but large swathes of the nation's most populous state are actually desert. The state's Central Valley is one such area, and residents of towns like Porterville have depended on wells for their water for decades.
2014 was the driest on record for California, the culmination of a severe, persistent drought that has wreaked havoc on communities like Porterville.
