The North Carolina General Assembly passed legislation in 2009 that was supposed to prevent pollution from contaminating Jordan Lake. However, after four years the changes outlined have not yet been put into effect.

"Jordan Lake is a vital part of the nearby community; it provides drinking water for over 300,000 citizens of North Carolina. On top of this, it provides a source of entertainment through boating, fishing, swimming, and other water sports." I come from a community which uses lakes for its backup drinking water supply. Because of the lakes' special status, power boats are not allowed. If the state of North Carolina is "forced" to clean up Jordan Lake, it sounds like it will just be dirtied again. In addition to the potential re-pollution by power boats, "The waste that cities dump in the water makes purification necessary for a healthy lake." If the very cities which depend upon this lake are dumping waste into it, then cleaning up the lake will be a waste of time, energy, and funds. Perhaps the task should be left to the locals and they can decide how dirty or clean they want their drinking/playing water to be. Besides "forcing" anyone to do anything is an act of violence. Better to have a voluntary society.

Perhaps if the people blocking legislation to clean up the lake were each offered a glass of water from the lake, and a glass of water from elsewhere, they would have a conception of why the lake needs to be cleaned up.

Signed and noted. The people who passed the law are probably buying their water because they know how polluted it is.
