Good Water Policy Is Necessary for a Sustainable Future

RECEIVED Sun., May 4, 2008

Dear Editor,
    Access to drinkable water seems to be a huge social issue most places around the world but apparently is not commanding the attention it deserves here in the U.S. It is my contention that the bottled-water industry, and water being traded in the private sector in general, does nothing but harm the future of our municipalities. The same billion-dollar industry of privately processed water can potentially be put toward the cities that support us. I am encouraging my fellow citizens to make the efficient and effective effort to fully support our city's water systems. Supporting clean, affordable, city-processed water can only encourage its sustainable future.
