The July 30 issue contained several examples that, in aggregate, illustrate why BWD's current desultory efforts to curtail water use in the valley will meet with the same sorry fate as all previous abortive attempts to deal with the community's water problem.

The cumulative effect of the above is an image of a community that is ignorant of or unconcerned about solving critical problems that confront it. In the case of the most severe of such problems, the rapid destruction of Borrego's sole-source aquifer, the situation is aggravated by BWD's diffidence, institutionalized affinity for cosmetic kluges, and aversion to plenary action. It is a deadly combination.
