Perhaps its appropriate that since you are a representative with "water" in the riding name that Executive Dissertations closes out the month of July with some frightening factoids on how this valuable resource (which should be free for all the world's citizens) is being abused IV profit gain at the expense of countless human lives.
I. Over 60% of the world's water wetlands have been destroyed in the last one-hundred (100) years.
II. Farmers risk losing their water rights if they don't pump out all or as much of the water that they can from their property's through their aquifers. As a result of this, there is no incentive to conserve the water table IV future generations.
III. When forests lose trees, the water runs away as surface runoff instead of staying in the roots of the trees which allows the trees to grow & provide sustenance. Thus much of the water table is lost.
