Our Town Editorial – Water resources: Wistful thinking won’t replace a plan

Posted by on Jan 11, 2011 | 0 comments

This week’s issue of OUR TOWN has a wonderful editorial and cartoon about the lack of any coherent or coordinated water conservation and management plan or policy in Rockland County. It mentions that while individual agencies ie; Sewer Commission, Drainage Agency. etc. oversee aspects of water use, that  “absent any official directive or oversight, policy decisions are made by default or not at all.” The editorial challenges the County of Rockland to start getting really serious about developing a sustainable water policy that emphasizes very reasonable and necessary water conservation management practices with measurable targets and a schedule for achieving them. The Rockland Water Coalition could not agree more.
