Before the whine increases regarding water shortages this coming season, I would wish for once that the real problem would be discussed. We have a water storage problem.
If we don’t truly address this, we really will have problems. We get more than enough water during the fall, winter and early spring to last during any dry summer — we just need to increase our storage capability.
If we don’t address this real issue, it will never be solved. All levels of government need to act and plan to increase our storage capabilities. To just gnash our teeth over the wrong issue will not solve anything.
