Take it to heart and conserve water

Editor’s note: About 50 percent of the water consumed in the Santa Clarita Valley comes from underground water sources.

This drought that we are experiencing in California “ has been the driest period since record-keeping began in the 19th century.”

Gov. Jerry Brown has asked for a 20 percent cutback in water use, but unfortunately water consumption has risen since that request.

The other unfortunate thing is that the defiers and challengers are trying to prove to Brown and all involved in this water conservation program that this doesn’t apply to them.

Some of the comments about not abiding by this water conversation program have been appalling, and reading some of the comments in the newspapers defying the drought is most scary.

I would like to think that these negative attitudes from non-believers are from the ones who don’t understand the urgency of this crucial matter.

My understanding is that underground water could alleviate some of this problem.

Other Western states regulate groundwater usage, but California does not.

The consensus is that underground water could determine California’s water future.

To all Californians: Please conserve water. It is very important for your welfare and for California’s welfare.
