Raw Water Should Not Be Shipped Out of Area

 


Dear Editor,

I am dismayed that “one of us,” the Doziers, would request permission to ship raw water out of our semi-arid area. Further, I am even more disappointed in our county commissioners for entertaining such a request.

Our water should only be removed from our area in an added value state, such as farm or garden produce, not in tankers or bottles.

Those of us who continually have to negotiate with state agencies to maintain our rights for irrigation water should find this bottled water request completely out of line and not be considered.

By the way, my documented “water rights” specifically read “for irrigation on xx acres,” (“xx” specifies actual acres).
