Welcome Me Back! Good To Be Back! Water In The News!

To my readers and friends I want to apologize for not being very active the past couple months. Starting Glanris up has consumed me. We are preparing for our grand opening in a few weeks and fortunately most of the difficult work is behind us. The good news is that I am all fresh and ready to talk water with you again. So here is my welcome back.

Throughout this blog when I render opinion on water I stick to the same basic but very critical themes.

  • We must do a better job of planning for our future water needs
  • Our water infrastructure is aging and creating ever increasing problems
  • America is in dire need of a National Water Policy
  • Increasing scarcity of water is bringing more corruption and opportunistic attempts to capitalize on water

With that said, let’s take a look at a few of the top water-related stories of the past few weeks.

ELEVATED LEAD FOUND IN DRINKING WATER – ROYAL OAK MICHIGAN

HIGH WATER AND FLOODING IN HOUSTON

BOIL WATER ALERT FOR EASTERN HAYS COUNTY

WATER MAIN BREAK CLOSES MONTOUR SCHOOLS

BOIL WATER ALERT IN GONZALES, LOUISIANNA

Here is what I would like you to take away from this article. A wise man told me that as long as we open our tap and water flows out we really don’t care about water. This is very true, and it is perhaps the biggest threat to safe drinking water that we face. I think for most of us, our perception of the state of water is based on our own situation. However, when we gander across the nation we quickly see that many of our fellow Americans are having water-related difficulties. Some days the news is rife with stories about water problems. This trend should trouble us because if these things are happening to the water of our neighbors, soon enough it will happen to ours.

WE MUST BECOME MORE VIGILANT WITH OUR WATER!
