Wakeup Call: Does Charlottesville have enough water?

Does Central Virginia have enough water to quench the thirst of everyone who wants to live here? The community pulled together during the drought of 2002 to help conserve water, but will there be enough the next time weather patterns shift to deny rainfall? On the Sunday, August 14th edition of WNRN‘s Sunday Morning Wakeup Call, a panel of experts debate plans to increase storage capacity, and the prospects of more pipelines bringing more water in from surrounding communities. Guests include Morgan Butler from the Southern Environmental Law Center, Liz Palmer from the League of Women Voters and John Martin with the Friends of the Moormans River. The governmental perspective comes from Charlottesville Mayor David Brown.

Also on the show, Rick spends his five minute commentary on the contradictions and enigmas that face the modern world. Rick talks about President Bush’s decision to not attend military funerals, religious attitudes towards gays and lesbians, as well as how the passing of Peter Jennings should cause people to think twice about smoking.
