City making it harder to get water from well

OlympiaJuly 16, 2013 

It appears the City of Olympia has finally found a way to severely limit and discourage the public from getting water from the artesian well. When the council first released their plan, I thought “Oh great, now besides dodging the homeless and the drunks, I’ll have to dodge ping pong balls as well.”

Rather than making it easier to get our well water, the council is going to make it almost impossible.

We go for the water — not to sit, play games, listen to music, eat food. Why not make the well the attraction rather than duplicating amenities and encouraging loitering and camping?

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
