With the current weather and ample rainfall, it is hard to remember that clean water is the scarcest commodity in the world for human beings. Even though we are lucky enough to have plenty of clean fresh drinking water, and also water for production of power, we should not take it for granted. When any single commercial or private use of water usurps the rights of the majority, it is time to take a stand. Do not let the federal Clean Water Act be compromised for the whole United States to benefit a single company like Coeur Alaska. Clean water is necessary for life. We should choose protection for clean water.
