I congratulate Mr Von Gaussig whose foresight has otherwise addressed many of his communities difficult problems.
I would like to see either principal in this local scuffle, begin to answer Jerome, Arizona's, water difficulties.
Here in this ex-mining, tourist town we drink from an aquifer via a couple of large storage tanks. But the overflow from these tanks has stopped...which means that 1.) the tanks aren't full or 2.) the aquifer has stopped charging the tanks.
We've had little rain, the Verde River is at record lows and a Jerome town council member is talking about the installation of water meters. What if there just ain't any water?
