What is your advice, or hope, for the new City of Santa Cruz Water Director Rosemary Menard?

LT allisonI hope that she, when thinking about it, thinks long term.

LT jeniferMy hope is that we can find a way to make sure that clean water is available for everyone, and I would consider a tertiary  water treatment to recycle the water that we use.

LT jenniferPGet people to stop watering their lawns. Don’t flush your toilet when you just pee in it. Be more conscious of how long you take a shower. Reuse your pasta water.

LT hankMaybe we should have two systems of water so we don’t use our drinking water to flush our toilets. And how can we totally recycle our water? How can we reuse it again? Can we do it in a permaculture environment where we bioremediate it? How can we effectively bioremediate our water and reuse it?
