Letters to the Editor

Letter: Growth

I hope thousands of residents will join me in urging Ada County commissioners and Boise City Council to stop any new construction that involves using one more drop of water. Whether it is well water or city water, it all comes out of the same aquifer. You have a fiduciary, legal and moral responsibility to protect those citizens who are already here. You have allowed overbuilding of this valley. Building must stop so water can flow and recharge. The building only deepens the contractors’ pockets. Many aren’t even from Idaho. If anyone or the entire valley runs low or out of water, I believe that you should be sued individually in a class-action suit for going against your oath of office to serve and protect. No more homes, buildings or expansions.

Gary Schaeffer, Boise
