An update on the water awareness and conservation campaign
By Ruth Kear
A coalition of NGO’s is slowly but surely making progress on raising our collective awareness around the serious water issues we face — both in terms of quantity and quality. Michael Lambert, president of Amigos de la Presa Allende, will speak on the initiatives under way and will inform on how to help to assure our water future in San Miguel. Mike will be joined by other members of the Water Collaborative, Engineers Without Borders, water biologists, and consultants who are in now testing surface water in San Miguel. Polluted water is not only a health hazard to humans but it is also detrimental to wildlife. Even though the rainfall this year seems substantial, the aquifer is still being depleted at an increasing rate due to the pressure of agriculture. Cleaning up surface water pollution is critical because the water experts believe that there will come a day when San Miguel will need to drink that water.
