the Water Bill HB 639- it's OUR Water!
Sen. Bob Graham as stated that the Dana Young's Bill, HB 639, is a slippery slope towards complete "privatization" of the Water Supply. While the Senator's concerns are well founded and should be addressed the issue still remains, if the City of Tampa pays for treating its waste water...Shouldn't they be able to use it as they please? Even I can see the problem with the State's over reaching on a city's rights on that...and I'm a Democrat! I can understand the concern about returning reclaimed water to the states "in need" natural aquifer's like the Everglades but it would seem that using more reclaimed water for irrigating agriculture & lawns would help the aquifer as well. Rep. Young & Mayor Buckhorn keep the fight going. The People of Tampa Need this Bill. "It's OUR WATER"
