Re "Utility plans for dry times" (Our Region, Feb. 19): Global warming or not, the water issues we are facing are real.
We all need strong resolve to work together, balancing all interests. It will be extremely hard and at times will seem almost impossible to move forward, but our very livelihood and our future depend on it.
We need to develop a water grid just like our electric grid so no one area faces water shortages. This may require many states, perhaps even Canadian provinces, working together for the betterment of all.
Let's put our differences aside and heads together to develop a long-term solution to harvest, store, transport, distribute, conserve, educate and respect of our life-sustaining natural resource: water.
