Rivers are sacred trusts. If towns start taking river water, the rivers will become trickles. No town should ruin a river. If a town has little and poor water, the townspeople should correct that. If a town overbuilds and increases its population, the river shouldn’t suffer.
UC Davis should remember it is in a small town. Builders should remember their many houses need water. If aquifers are in trouble, fix them. Taking water from a river is a sin. Fix the water problem in the town: mandate water conservation, mandate less construction, mandate fewer students at UCD, with no more new buildings.
Davis should never partner with Woodland, since Woodland always opts to ruin the nearest field with more ugliness. Stop this madness.
