give voice to your concerns

I am making this information available to you (public) on my blog site … … and as part of some of the emails I forward trusting you will choose to make the time and effort to become informed about how your state government and its regulatory agencies choose to address all the issues and topics associated with WATER in Arizona.  


Bottom line, the rules and regulation governing you’re the use, the safeness, quality, purity of your WATER and WASTEWATER will soon be subjected to revision with or without your participation and you will be compelled to comply with them.


Unless you choose to participate – give voice to your concernsall revisions will be made behind closed doors essentially by county environmental health regulators, lobbyists, private sector design engineers, land developers, attorneys, academia essentially tied to special interests and if you are lucky perhaps one lone “public” voice.  


Yes, one can say the deck is currently stacked against “public” participation … but … here’s an opportunity to begin to exert your authentic authority over your WATER and WASTEWATER … and make no mistake Arizona’s water is at risk and you would be well advised to make yourself as knowledgeable as possible.


The choice to participate in solely in your hands … I sincerely invite you to get involved … if I might be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at … but … believe me I do NOT have all the answers.
