Some pretty deep holes

Moe put on his glasses to read this article.

“We’ve managed water, and often not managed water, in ways that have landed us in some pretty deep holes. Groundwater levels are declining in many parts of the state faster than they can be replenished, threatening the communities, industry and streams that depend upon that water.”

This article is about Washington Sate – but the facts seem global to Moe.

“Fact #1: Our past cannot be our future.
Fact #2: Water management is hard, but it will get harder.
Fact #3: Our water resources are finite.

It’s time to modernize water management, and agree that all interests are essential to the future we want.”
