MEMORANDUM



TO: George Wilson 1 MAR 4 1981

FROM: Richard P. Ludington OFFICE OF SPECIAL PROJECTS

RE: Chapter 17-40 Water Policy


(A)17-40.06 As a policy consideration, all citizens should
be entitled to the maintenance of their quality of
drinking water.

Pure drinking water should be distinguished from all other
quantity and quality considerations.

No one should have the right to degrade the quality of
another's drinking water for any reason. As the Mexican
Constitution supports, the right to pure drinking water
is a fundamental human right that should be emphasized
in a state water policy statement (suggestion: add policy
on drinking water supplies).

(B)17-40.08(1)(b) Salinity fluctuations, in our estuaries,
which are subject to District manipulation is the critical
factor in successful breeding of many species of marine
fish and shell fish. A slight change in salinity at the
wrong time can seriously impact breeding potentials
(suggestion: add fish and wildlife habitats and breeding
and the passage of fish).
