we are really lost on the other side of the lookng glass

Perspective for your consideration …What does it look like when it’s fixed…?

Elizabeth Cutright’s editorial in the Water Efficiency magazine – http://www.waterefficienty.net. – Sept/Oct 2008 issue – is a worthy read and I invite you to make the time to consider it.

The collage of actions taken by governmental regulators to enforce “water” rules and regulations adopted in various locales is I think, when you read her article indicative of the Mad Hatter run amok.

The actions to which she makes reference reflect overzealousness of the regulators, whereas in our State of Arizona, the overzealousness of our regulators reflects a joining at the hip of government regulators and the developers and their minions.

The zealousness in Arizona is NOT to conserve – water – but rather to USE all the water we have or to which we are entitled by act of commerce. Our leadership is not aligned to support honest state-wide education leading to a consensus based voluntary compliance to the honest conservation and protection of water.

Ms. Cutright does an admirable job of noting the absurd paradox in the rules, regulations, laws and ordinances we permit to be enacted governing the use to water none of which are clear, concise or understandable.

She ends with this … so when we find ourselves in a situation where a homeowner is harassed for conserving water well … then we really are lost on the other side of the looking glass …

And let me be even a bit bolder I am most willing to present and discuss any water issue before any audience in Arizona where full disclosure and two way dialog is permitted.
