Re: “How did we get here? A brief water history” in Wednesday’s Enterprise, the article provides an excellent and concise review of how Davis leaders have wrestled with the thorny issue of how to improve our water supply.
In the past, the benefits (sustainable, softer, better-tasting water) were deemed not to outweigh the signficant costs. Current state law, with its mandates and fines if Davis doesn’t stop mining its water from wells, has finally tipped the balance in favor of doing what our city has always wanted to do — find a supply of surface water.
Measure I will accomplish this, and I urge all Davis voters to support it.
