Attorney Chris Brooks, a friend of The Weekly, has launched a blog that is trying to make sense of local water policy. Check it out for a good round-up of what's been going on with the city-county committee that's been examining our water supplies.

One big takeaway:

Essentially they are asking - How far will our existing supplies take us under these different scenarios? The upshot of this being, that unless we either find new supplies, make greater use of effluent, or further reduce per capita usage (or some combination of those) we will be hitting some limits with our supplies around 2020, which is not that far off.
