Water not wasted that flows into Red River

BY YOUR NAME Staff Writer Published: June 19, 2013

Regarding “Water fight: State should leverage its valuable resource” (Our Views, June 14): Water isn't wasted by mixing it with the salty Red River. Water is so much more than something to be sold or consumed. It's also the lifeblood of the ecosystem through which it flows. Of course we don't want to waste our water, but we also want to protect the fish, wildlife and recreation — the nonconsumptive uses — that depend on our natural water.

The ecology of the salty Red River has for centuries depended on the diluting effects of the fresh water that flows into it. Thus, when fresh water flows into the Red River it isn't a waste. It's nature's way.
