Drought Prospects Featured in Website Video Series
‘Good and Scarce –- Water’
As Summer comes to Lake Wildwood after a dry Winter and Spring, water is a greater concern than ever. A new edition of a three-part video series on Wildwood water is now on the community website. Labeled “Good and Scarce — Water,” the video is about Drought and how one of our driest years is already affecting water supplies for drinking, irrigating, and maintaining the lake Itself. The first part in the video series is entitled “Water…Water Everywhere?“ This program is also streaming on the website and describes where our water comes from and how it is transported and treated.
In “Good and Scarce –- Water,” Studio 95’s Dick Fay interviews NID’s Kaycee Strong, the district’s water efficiency expert. Strong outlines the district’s view of Drought conditions and the plans for dealing with it across the region.
Fay also interviews Bill Hamilton, director of Agronomy for Lake Wildwood, on his plans to cope with the Drought. He manages maintenance of the community’s award-winning golf course and park system. Both require huge volumes of irrigation water every year.
Part 3 of the series is in production now, according to Fay. It features an interview with Bill Yanko, public health microbiologist and former Lake Committee member. A local resident, Yanko discusses what the drought is doing to the quality and quantity of water in the lake. Viewers also get an update on the presence of e-coli and blue-green algae.
