Watch your ground water

Dave Moller writes about a Groundwater study proposed before county expansion, April 20, 2005
Nevada County could be headed for a disaster if its groundwater supply can’t sustain growth, a businessman said Wednesday.

With little information available about the sustainability of the area’s well water, Steve Baker of HydroSolutions said he would like his company to start long-term monitoring of wells.
Several years ago, one of our local green organizations, I forget which, proposed that we put meters on local wells, to insure property owners were not taking more than their fair share from ground water that they considered a public asset. The no growther’s want to take control of your water. Well monitoring could only the beginning.

Tell me what you think
