Congressman calls for national water panel
November 9, 2007
Georgia Rep. John Linder says he wants a national water panel
to serve as a central organizing body for everything we know about water use and production. He insists that it wouldn't be a body for setting national water policy, but instead would serve as a central clearinghouse for information. The problem with the idea is that we already have the EPA
, the US Army Corps of Engineers
, American Water Works Association
, Water Environment Federation
, and a laundry list of other organizations and research institutions already devoted to water issues -- the problem is that policymakers have been extremely slow to act on water issues that we've known about for decades. The problem is not one of lacking information -- it's that too little action has been taken at the state and local levels with the information we already have.
