After air, water is the most precious resource we have....and we have precious little left.
It is fearsome to think what runoff (that becomes someone's drinking water) is not being tested for. We carry a water filter when visiting Pittsburgh, Washington DC and Philadelphia family members whose water supply carries a stench, unpalatable taste and who knows what else.
And just when we see the Bay coming back, we have mercury issues all over again due to mandated use of compact fluorscent lamps but no real means to handle used/broken lamps that by their volumes are far worse than regulated car junk yards with their mercury switches.
When will we ever learn? Life on this planet, as we know it, is nearing its end. If we stop crapping on it maybe we can squeeze a few more years for the next generation. Adopt the proposed storm water management program as submitted.
