Water, water everywhere and all the boards did queak, water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink.
We need energy. How much of this water is re-condensed and recycled? Energy does command the use of water. So does the cleaning of all your fast foods. But nobody complains about that because they all like to gorge themselves at the trough. Wait until the lights dim, not enough power to operate AC, heat water, refrigerate our foods, run our computers and entertainment centers, or recharge our cellphones.. And soon our electric cars will be parked in the garage because the environmental movement wants to intervene. The problem; over population, and cheap power. Can't do anything about the population growth which will add another BILLION people on the planet in 15 years (Now at 7 Billion). Raise the cost of electric power as and reduce consumption. But then the environmentalists will complain about the obscene profits. You can't win with these people. It's a trade off that can be managed..
Were any representatives from the city at this groundwater district meeting? Who's looking out for the city's interest in protecting our water supply? This groundwater issue seems to be something that all of us should be paying attention to. With this drought that is predicted to continue for many more years, how many others are going to want to drill wells to get water? How will this affect our city's supply of water?
I don't understand why some people are so against this plant they have jumped thru hoops. This just shows who is against our county growing because it might hurt their own pocketbooks
