WOMEN FOR WISE GROWTH ANNOUNCES WATER-FOCUSED FORUM

Women for Wise Growth will sponsor a free public forum, "Wise Choices, or Fools for Growth?" in the Durham County Main Library auditorium on Wednesday, April 2 from 7-9 p.m.

The forum will focus on the relationship between our available resources, particularly water, and public policies on development. It will be continued on April 24. The two-part series is designed to help citizens better understand several crucial issues facing Durham County in the weeks leading up to the May 6 election: Are we growing wisely? Do we have the resources to handle the growth patterns that we currently see in this area? Have we reached the outer limits of sustainable growth? Do we need shifts in policy to reflect the reality of drought? Discussion will follow the presentations as time allows.

Speaking on April 2 will be: Bill Holman, senior fellow at the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University. Holman is former executive director of the Clean Water Management Trust Fund, and former Secretary of the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources. He has been affiliated with Duke since 2006.

Mark Chilton, Mayor of Carrboro, will also speak. Chilton, an attorney, served on the Carrboro Board of Aldermen before being elected Mayor in 2005. He became the youngest person ever elected to public office in North Carolina when he was sent to the Chapel Hill Town Council in 1991. Chilton has been particularly concerned with environmental, growth and housing policies throughout his career.

Syd Miller, Water Resources Program Manager for the Triangle J Council of Governments, will round out the program. His team provides planning and management services for water resources to local governments, state and federal agencies, and nongovernmental organizations. Miller is Fellow of the Natural Resources Leadership Institute, and holds a Master's degree in regional planning from UNC-CH. His recent work includes the Triangle Area Water Supply Monitoring Project.

WOMEN FOR WISE GROWTH HOSTS 2nd FORUM ON WATER RESOURCES

"From the Watershed to the Tap: Promoting change to preserve the quantity and quality of our water supply" will be the theme of Women for Wise Growth's second free public forum on Thursday, April 24. The event will be held in the Durham County Main Library auditorium from 7-9 p.m.

The forum will focus directly on the relationship between growth and our regional water supplies. Speakers from neighboring counties will consider Durham's public policies on development and watershed protection.

Durham draws its drinking water from the Neuse Basin, but discharges its effluent-and is building heavily-in the Haw River watershed/Cape Fear Basin, which includes Jordan Lake. Elaine Chiosso, Executive Director of the Haw River Assembly and an expert on water quality issues, will speak about Durham's relationship to Jordan Lake. In addition to running the influential grass-roots water protection program of the Haw River Assembly, Chiosso is a member of Chatham County's Environmental Review Board and was named by Gov. Easley to the NC Sedimentation Control Commission in 2006. She is expected to discuss such issues as the impact of mass grading and its associated erosion on water quality.

Also speaking on April 24 will be Barry Jacobs, chair of the Orange County Board of Commissioners. He has been a Commissioner since 1998, and throughout his time on the Board has been particularly concerned with growth policies and environmental responsibility. He is expected to discuss balancing growth with watershed protection, careful land-use planning, and the preservation of open space. His many civic roles include membership on the NC Commission on Smart Growth, Growth Management and Development.

Women for Wise Growth's two-part forum series is designed to help citizens better understand, in the weeks leading up to the May 6 election, several crucial issues concerning growth and natural resources facing Durham County. The April 2 forum focused on the realities of the drought cycle and brought out many important facts regarding water availability, water usage and population pressures on this vital resource. Speaker bios and audio recordings from that event are available at http://h2opodcast.com/water3.html#wwg. Blogger Kevin Davis posted an extensive report at http://www.bullcityrising.com/2008/04/drought-forum-g.html.

The Durham County Main Library is located at 300 N. Roxboro St., between Holloway and Liberty Streets, in downtown Durham. It is fully accessible, with plenty of parking.

Women for Wise Growth is an ad hoc group of Durham County women concerned with resource management and good government. WWG has no institutional structure or affiliations. For more information, call Julia Borbely-Brown at 688-9479, or email womenforwisegrowth@gmail.com

Description, guest list and links

Water... it's the source of all life. 70 percent of the planet is covered in it, and more than half of your body is made up of it. We use water everyday to refresh, revive, to subsist... yet, water resources are growing increasingly scarce around the world and access to potable water is alarmingly difficult in some regions.

In this special, hour-long edition, we look at some core water issues affecting people around the world, including privatization, access to clean water, desalination technology, bottled water debates, and non-point source pollution. A half-hour version of this program is also available.

The World Bank predicts that two-thirds of the world¹s population will not have enough fresh drinking water by the year 2025. Instead of protecting existing supplies, promoting conservation or helping vulnerable populations, many governments are turning to private companies to fix their water woes. Private companies, often large transnational corporations, are looking to cash in. On this edition of Making Contact, we take a look at water privatization in South Africa, Ghana, Bolivia, and the United States.

This is a look at water use, water attitudes and water conservation with emphasis on composting toilets. See plans for composting toilet by Stan Slaughter

Over the last 25 years, we have approached the appreciation of water in many different ways.

In this presentation we visualized the water in a relaxing water journey and tried to carry that same relaxed feeling as we looked at the hard core issues as they have been distilled by the Water Committeee of the Continental Bioregional Congresses since 1984.

Recognizing our part in the water cycles, thanking the water and being present to the water are changes in consciousness that I believe must occur for us to share water and use it wisely. Water is living, wanting to be known.

Barbara Harmony, Coordinator National Water Center

Dead zones--large areas of water with little oxygen--occur when excess fertilizer and untreated sewage seep into the waters. The dead zones are usually seasonal and they cause fish and other bottom-dwelling animals to move outside the area to avoid being suffocated. Much underwater life also dies. Since the 1960s the number of dead zones worldwide has doubled with each passing decade. In Lake Erie, a massive multiyear study is underway to study how the lake's ecosystem is affected by its dead zone. Producer Mhari Saito has our report. (6:00)
