Conservation first

Los OsosMay 15, 2013 

I was flabbergasted and disappointed to review the May 8 article “Water district gets support” and see no emphasis on conservation (practically no mention, either). Supervisors adopt seven recommendations, and not one bullet point on conservation?

Common sense dictates conservation is the first step and most affordable action. When we as a society focus on demand instead of supply, we will be better off. There is no more water today or tomorrow than there has been in the past thousands and thousands of years. It is how we use it (or not) that matters. There is no “more.”

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
