The water crisis in North County is reaching the point of no return! County supervisors are well aware of the issue, but two of them are stalling.
I just want to ask the holdouts, which would be harder to say? “I’m sorry, residents; you can’t use the water to brush your teeth twice a day, only once every couple days; you need to conserve,” or “I’m sorry, huge vineyard conglomerates; you may not be able to expand this year; at least you get to write it off as a loss.”
Really? Domestic water use has priority, period! Stop new drilling! Give our basin a timeout on over-pumping until the solutions are found.
We as a community need to come together to save our basin, for everyone, residents and farmers alike! The Board of Supervisors needs to take the leadership role we elected them for!
