Find the average residential water under the current split, Microeconomics

Suppose you are a regulator in charge of allocating water between residential and agricultural users (farmers) in Southern California. You conduct a survey that finds that under the current split the average residential water consumer would be willing to pay up to $0.70 a gallon for the next gallon of water they consume while the increased market value of crop production from the gallon of water (after farmers pay their costs) to the most profitable farmer would be $0.20. Is the current allocation of water economically efficient (circle: yes or no)? If not, in what direction should the water be reallocated? In a sentence or two explain how we would expect these two quantities to compare to each other if net benefits were maximized.
