Tuesday, February 7 is the first day of the 2017 Alabama Legislative Session.
Please take a moment today and call, write, email, Facebook or Tweet YOUR Senator and House Representative and let them know that the protection of water is important to YOU, as a voter in their district.
Here are three points you can tell your elected officials when you contact them:
1. Alabama’s 132,000+ miles of rivers and water resources are important to me as a voter in your district.
2. The safety of our water and the long-term availability of our water depends on Alabama having a sustainable water plan that balances water use with the health of our rivers and streams.
3. The state needs some entity that is accounting for water use and has the authority to make the necessary decisions that protect rivers and water sources in times of crises, like the recent drought.
