Can you imagine a day without water?

(page 2 of 2)

Here in Dane County, we believe we are up to the challenge of sustainably managing our water resources while providing accessible, reliable, and affordable water services. In addition to investments by area farms and municipal governments aimed at keeping our surface waters clean, Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District and the Madison Water Utility anticipate infrastructure investments valued at more than $30 million during the coming year alone.

No community can thrive without water and all of us deserve a safe, reliable, and accessible water supply. While the Imagine a Day Without Water campaign is designed to help citizens nationwide gain a greater appreciation for value of water, Dane County community leaders, governments, water utilities, businesses, farmers, and other stakeholders are committed to ensuring residents here never experience the reality of a day without this precious resource.

Michael Mucha is chief engineer and director of the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District.

Water however outside of major cities has been taking major legislative hits (and possibly some legal ones) as restrictions on high capacity wells and suit suggesting waiting until a major manure spill occurs until regulating manure. These and other bills (Governor Walker wisely vetoes the blasting at any time quarry bill)increasingly restrict the rights of small rural landowners. This of course occurs at a time when most rural counties have declining birth rates and often declining work forces and need more rural residents. Under the current rural agenda however you would be crazy to invest in rural housing. Initially I was sad when we sold our home two years ago in rural Dane now I am relieved we got out in time.
