    Let’s think now!
    Purest water on earth!
    Protect this gem before it is too late!,

  3. Julie Barker says:

    Time after time, and example after example, history provides justification for following the precautionary principle – basically -‘when in doubt, don’t!’ We have plenty of proof that all life on our planet is dependent on water, especially clean water. Unfortunately, local citizens have had many years of growing distrust that even three levels of government are able to protect the quality of our essential resource – water. It looks like citizens must oversee and find ways to overcome!
