Kathy Johnston wrote another well-researched, balanced article (“Ground zero for ground water,” Sept. 17). She introduced readers to an issue of critical importance to folks in the North County: We are dependent on a groundwater supply that is limited and is significantly impacted.
As she reported, we have moved beyond much of the usual finger-pointing. It appears that the major stakeholders realize we must manage this resource. We, as a community, must ensure there is an adequate, sustainable water supply for our current residents and for those who own undeveloped legal lots.
The cities and the vineyard owners have started to step up to the plate. Now, all of us rural residents must do our part. We all need to use water wisely.
