OWASA eyeing Jordan Lake water

Having just read this article (http://www.newsobserver.com/news/orange/story/1103191.html) I do not know how I feel about this issue. On one and Jordan Lake seems to be a rather large body of water. So, why not tap into it?

On the other hand, it is a fixed source of water and as I look around I see many people and institutions waste this precious resource (water). Let's use the water that we have responsibly first. Then, when we need more, tap into other sources. I am leaning towards this idea.



As soon as OWASA lowered their high level of water restrictions, even though our capacity was only 85%, we entered a record-breaking heatwave. Now, our supply is down to 82%, and it is not even the hottest month of summer yet. OWASA needs to reinstate its Level 3 water restrictions and we need to accept that mindful water conservation is just a way of life now.

Here's an article that scares me:


We don't need more government regulations.  And we don't need more state (or federal) government. How is one municipality supposed to share their water with another? Pipes? Vehicles? Train?
