Water, Water Quality and impact on diseases is and has been a very real concern of mine. I support this position. We are seeing the use of water sources that are tremendously variable and compromised in many different ways in SD County and this position has a lot of pertinence. Ground water that has high EC, Deterioration of the municipal supplies as a result of less delta water, as well as an ever higher dependence on high salinity "reclaimed" water is creating questions on the impact to soil borne diseases.
