Water - it is our most valuable resource.
Industries can’t manufacture it and it’s not a renewable resource - what we have is what we have.
It can be cleaned and filtered or it can be polluted but it cannot be mass produced.
That means that protecting it should be of major concern to all of us.
That’s what the County Commission recently saw when a group of citizens, mostly from The Villages, came to object to plans to let a bottled water company extract hundreds of thousands of gallons of water per day from a proposed well site in Sumterville.
