Water district must start working for us, the taxpayers

Published July 23, 2008 Commentary
Last week, the water district's staff issued a report recommending that a water-bottling company from California be allowed to drill two 16-inch wells, suck out nearly a half-million gallons a day and bottle it for sale.

Water-district engineers said the withdrawal would have a "negligible" effect on nearby lakes and wetlands. And truth be told, other entities ranging from developments to governments are seeking far more of the precious underground resource. Still, the amount of water Niagara Bottling LLC wants isn't a drop in the proverbial bucket.
