Michael W. Sole and Kirby Green: Conservation key to saving our water

Posted by Trish Riley, May 13, 2009

Making a case for conserving water – while they’re busy negotiating deals to give it away by the multi-million gallons to other regions and selling the stuff to heavy-profit-making water bottling companies. Hmmm.

“Much work has been done to identify and evaluate alternative sources of water, such as seawater, brackish groundwater and surface water from rivers and lakes.

Maintaining a dependable, long-term water supply is not something that can be achieved by Florida’s governmental agencies alone. Without the support of Florida’s residents, water resource protection is little more than a good idea, and water conservation nothing more than an interesting topic for discussion.

It is important to remember that conservation is not about “doing without.” It is about small and simple everyday changes that can help protect our water resources when we’re experiencing drought, and promoting habits that will save us money year round and help us be better prepared for the next drought occurrence.”
