State Water Code - AAUW Conference

Last month we reported on the People's Water Conference sponsored by Hawaii's Thousand Friends, Alu Like-O Ahu Island Center, and Conservation Council for Hawaii, (Apologies for not noting their sponsorship in the report.)

The public is invited to a conference sponsored by the AAUW on Sat., Jan, 18, with the State Water Code the major issue, (A preference has been expressed to codify common law rather than establish a water code.) A League representative will attend. All interested are invited to the AAUW Residence, 1802 Keeaumoku St., 9 a.m., to 3 p.m. ("Brown bag" lunch and free parking.) For additional information call 537-4702 (AAUW) or 395-2127 (Martha Black).

League members became concerned about ' depletion and conservation of natural resources as far back as the 1920's and 1930's, Our LWVUS Natural Re-sources support is:

To promote the wise management of resources in the public interest An environment beneficial to life.

In 1956 the decision to study water resources was prompted by realization that the rising population, increasing industrialization, and urbanization had caused a water crisis of growing proportions. The National position in brief states:

Action to improve and protect water quality and support planning and management of water resources to meet local and regional needs and the national interest.

Read the "Impact on Issues" for 84-86 for the National position in full, be informed on local water issues, and work toward appropriate legislation.
