Recently I heard a discussion about water use and I few thoughts came to my mind. When a county resident (not on a public sewer system) uses water it goes through his/her house where it is used, then it passes into pipes into his/her private septic system where the water is cleaned by bacteria and goes back into the aquifer for future use. Total water consumption from the aquifer is not 100 percent --more like 15 percent! When a city resident (on a public sewer system) uses water it goes through his/her house where it is used, then it passes through pipes into the city where treatment plant and out into the bay. None of it makes it into the aquifer for reuse. Total water consumption is truly 100 percent. This is only one of the issues I believe are being ignored during many of the water planning meetings being held in our community. Please attend these meetings and stay involved!
