Drillers are bringing in large rigs like this one from all over the west, to drill deeper wells in the quest for water.
There's a drilling boom in California -- and it's not for oil or gas. With little help from the sky or the Sierra snowpack this year, farmers and ranchers are leaning heavily on pumping groundwater.

New studies show that as groundwater is drained from the huge aquifer there, it's putting more stress on the San Andreas Fault, triggering earthquakes. Reporter: Sasha Khokha
