Why I voted yes on I

By
From page A8 | February 26, 2013 |

I voted yes on Measure I and hope others will, too. Water rates are going up either way, Davis … whether it’s to pay back fines for cleanup efforts related to the disgusting quality of our current water (which is classified as “wastewater” when it leaves our homes given the high concentration of contaminants, including arsenic) or to pay for building a cleaner water infrastructure for the future. I, for one, think that we owe it to future generations to think about where we’re going and pony up for a clean, sustainable water future.

To those who claim that this vote is more about cosmetics than health … while I am not a water quality researcher, I have spoken to dermatologists who report treating folks for skin conditions related to the poor quality of our water and environmental scientists who report that the contaminants in our water (especially arsenic, which is super-dangerous for kiddos) are so high that our city is being fined for creating so much “wastewater.”

Even our vet has forbidden us to give our dog tap water because it was causing him to have crystals in his urine! If Davis tap water isn’t good enough for our dog, I’m fairly certain it can’t be good for our two young sons. If we get some cosmetic benefits, too … that’s awesome!

Mainly, though, I just want to make sure that what’s going inside bodies and on top of skin is the best quality it can be. If you agree, please vote yes on Measure I!
