Linda Segal: It's lunacy to even consider selling Valley water

January 30, 2014 

Selling even a cup of Valley water is selling the foundation of the economy of our farming region. What person in their right mind could even consider such a proposal? The dams were built to give us water for our farmland, and the politicians (just like in Washington, D.C.) are showing their disdain for those they should represent. Please stop this lunacy!

What are we doing to prevent a drought from devastating the Valley again? Are we building new reservoirs or desalination plants? Let’s plan for our future and not sell the water we have planned to have and need for our economy, jobs, wealth, industry, food, life.
