When I unrolled the CDT last Friday, the first thought to cross my mind was “how beautiful!” The second thought was “luxury student housing.”
To endanger a a well water recharge field to accommodate “luxury student housing” seems to me to be shortsighted. To have a safe water supply for our community is a very real luxury.
Talk to people in Flint, Mich., if you think clean water is a necessity to be taken for granted. The East has been blessed to have ample water as opposed to the West. But droughts happen here too. And the future is uncertain.
