BO administration not allowing a town to repair their water source
Made popular 370 days ago in
The current administrations denying a town the right to repair it's broken water supply. Could it be because it's in Arizona which is an "enemy" of the administration. Could it be because this tough little town which I have been to over a dozen times; has tons of small entrepreneurial businesses which are resistant to government interference?
Ahh, greenies and socialists and progressives who decide what they want and say is better for everyone else in society than the needs of one tiny, stubborn, and fiercely US American town.
(below is directly from news article, see link for more)
Historic Tombstone, Ariz., long has been known as the “Town Too Tough To Die,” but that was before it encountered the Obama administration, which has refused permission for the town to repair the water system in the nearby Huachuca Mountains from which it has drawn H2O for more than a century.
That means the town is living on only a fraction of the water supplies to which it is accustomed, drawing only from several wells, some of which are poisoned by arsenic, town representatives say.
The mountain collection system was destroyed when a forest fire ravaged the hilltops last year and then monsoon rains washed mud and boulders across the collector channels and pipelines.....
The radical “green,” or ecological, element appears to be playing a role, Dranias noted.
As part of the litigation over Tombstone’s water, he said, emails to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from various activists cheered the fires and floods that destroyed Tombstone’s water supply system.

Now??? Has the current administration gone too far by cutting off a towns water supply?
No - please comment on why you say no: please don't go on a rant unrelated to the subject at hand
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.

To the person who voted no:
Really!!! I can't believe anyone could think it was ok to cut off an entire towns water supply because of greenie liberals.

I tried to to find info on this not much out there. Not sure what the repair entails in terms of ecological elements. The population is 1500. Imagine you had to tear down an entire mountain to fix it.
Two sides to the story.

Free, I see your point. What are 1500 people, their homes, their businesses, the historical significance of the town when it comes to the possibility of having to dig into a mountain? You are so right, they aren't worth it, where was my head? The Obama administration must know what is best, 1500 people and a town with a long and rich history is not worth it if some trenches have to be dug. I bow to the 0.01% of the wise elite socialist/progressive body to tell the rest of us what is right and wrong.

Seriously, took me about 2 minutes to find out the exact nature of what the town needs to do to restore their water supply. They need to make a pathway to the bottom of a mountain where falling rocks damaged their supply lines. So they don't have to wreck any mountain, or dig except to remove fallen rocks. They do need to make a temporary path in the wilderness. If I know anything about wilderness, it is that a temporary path is going to be overgrown in a short time after it is no longer needed.
