Enough talking, Soquel Creek water directors

Santa Cruz Sentinel, 9/10/14

We have been conserving water to the point that the Soquel Creek Water District will now increase our water bills because they need money to operate. The Soquel Creek Water District board now needs a reduction in their salaries as well. Supervision of private wells, a moratorium on new water installations, and an in-depth study on a new reservoir are needed to realistically look at the whole picture. We are continuing to flush our toilets with dish water, have stopped watering our lawn, take short showers or none at all and most of us are doing our part to conserve. There is too much talk and not enough action.

Jeff and Judy Williams, Aptos
