New Dams in Western Washington?

By ADAM WILSON- The Olympian - Olympia, Washington
"Growth in Lacey, Olympia and Tumwater threatens to outstrip the area's supply of freshwater. Lacey has enacted an effective ban on development outside its city limits as it comes close to using the maximum amount of water to which it has a legal right. [Governor] Gregoire, speaking to the Olympia Rotary Club, said a shared-used concept, as well as building storage to lessen the effect of high-demand periods in the summer, could be the answer."
