Apologize to W. Sac and move on

From page A6 | February 19, 2013 |

I just read about the public health risks inherent in the current Woodland-Davis water project. The Woodland-Davis drinking water treatment plant and the Woodland wastewater treatment plant will be directly across the street from each other. The state Department of Public Health is very concerned about contamination of our future drinking water with airborne pathogens.

There is no mitigation of this airborne pathogen risk that offers 100 percent safety. Personally, I feel far more comfortable with West Sacramento’s treated water then with Woodland water that is exposed to dangerous pathogens.

West Sacramento uses a traditional water treatment method that meets all safety standards. It is the same system used by the overwhelming majority of Americans.

The Davis City Council clearly offended West Sacramento by publicly denigrating the quality of its water, and by making unreasonable and impossible demands that it change its perfectly adequate water treatment system.

For the sake of both cost and safety, I think we would be better off partnering with West Sacramento. Woodland is welcome to join for a true regional plant with efficiencies of scale. I agree that two small rural towns cannot afford an entirely separate surface water system.

If we apologize to West Sacramento for making rude and embarrassing comments about the safety of its water, I believe that city will be happy to embrace a true regional partnership. We are much safer with water from West Sacramento, which the same traditional, tried-and-true water treatment system that every other city in the northern part of the Central Valley uses.

I am voting no on Measure I. We cannot afford this project, there is no emergency and there are lower-cost options.
