Thursday, May 7, 2009 | Economies, the environment and life are highly dependent on a reliable water supply. Water is the single most important chemical compound for the preservation of human life and is one of the key powers to the creation of wealth. Water creates jobs, attracts industries and investments, and provides for the health and welfare of citizens in ways ranging from disease prevention to fire suppression.
Water provided in nature for man’s use is not infinite and is never destroyed. A safe, reliable supply of desalinated seawater may be critical to the community. Since securing the desalination process for a water supply and to lower monthly water bills is controlled by water managers, you should contact your water manger to investigate desalination. Preferably the process that will produce sea salt not salt brine that is placed back into the environment, a process that will not require high energy, a process that will decrease the cost of your water, a desalination process that is now available. Only if managers step away from the group precepts will they be able to furnish the water that is required. Unless customers demand a solution to the water shortage very little will be done. The water professionals and communities they serve must join together to recognize the unique opportunities the vital role water plays in our daily lives. With all the water available from the sea, man should not be deprived.
