Why are there no arguments in favor of measure 9-70 in the voters' pamphlet? It seems like a responsible action to require homes to be connected to a sanitary sewer system or to upgrade existing septic systems. Long-term protection of the quality of our groundwater is essential, and unless we take action, the quality of water available for our children and grandchildren will be affected. Like many other environmental issues, we are too shortsighted to realize that it may not affect us in our lifetime, but fail to see to the consequences of our decisions on future generations. Shouldn't we deal with our own shit instead of leaving it around for our kids to clean up?
