(Opinion ~ 07/11/20)
I have heard disturbing news that the new fountain planned for downtown Sikeston will not recycle the water. Is that true? If not, please get that information out to the public that we are not wasting gallons of water! Would that even pass an EPA requirement? If it does not recycle and uses gallons of water, who will shoulder that cost? The townspeople will and already water prices for irrigation have been raised at a time we have more drought each summer. I have been amazed at how the information about the function and maintenance of the fountain has not been made easily available.
