Drinking Water Supply Reservoir Protection

Senate Bill 981, "Drinking Water Reservoir Protection", was approved unanimously by the House Environment Committee this week. I sponsored the House companion to this bill. The bill, a major clean water priority of the environmental community, would take a proactive approach to protecting our water supplies. The need for the bill was highlighted by a proposal last summer that would have significantly increased the discharge of wastewater and nutrients into Falls Lake, a vital source of drinking water for the triangle region. Current law addresses cleaning up water after it has become impaired. The bill would affect the Falls Lake and Jordan Lake watersheds, the latter of which includes Greensboro.

Thank you for supporting clean water. It is usually harder to clean up a mess than to avoid making a mess in the first place.
Without Clean Air and Clean Water we cannot survive.
Thank you again,
diane
