To the point about more storage being "expensive":

In 2014, California voters approved (67-33) Proposition 1, with the understanding that $2.7 billion would be dedicated to storage, dam, and reservoir projects. But so far, “not much has been built,” says Edward Ring, co-founder and senior fellow with the California Policy Center.

“The biggest two projects, Sites Reservoir and Temperance Flat, have gone almost nowhere.”

The Sites Reservoir, which was first proposed in the 1980s, “has been downsized to 1.5 million acre-feet,” Ring adds, “and remains mired in potential litigation and procedural delays.”
