Clean, safe drinking water is the substance of life but assuring its existence and availability is not a battle for sissies.There are more than 10,000 factory farms in Iowa now. The state is home to 26 million hogs that produce the equivalent waste of 65 million people. That waste has to go somewhere.
Big business needs it, wants it, pays for it and ... well, those getting stuck with the bill are the very ones who need it as well.
Clean, safe water is not a local issue or one threatened by only one or two industries. It's your kids and mine. Hell, even politicians-bought-and-paid-for occasionally drink water.
