A special water supply summit meeting on what to do about the Washington area's pressing water supply problem is being sponsored by several regional organizations. Friday at 9 a.m. at the Departmental Auditorium on Constitution Avenue between 12th and 14th Streets NW.
Two proposals will be the focus of the Friday meeting. One, proposed by an engineer on the staff of the Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin, suggests connecting existing resevors rather than building new ones. The other proposal put forth by Norman Cole, former chairman of the Virginia State Water Control Board, is to pump water from the Shenandoah Valley over from the moutains and into Northern Virginia.
The major regional organizations sponsoring the summit meeting are the Metropolitan Washington Council of Government, the Water Resources Planning Board, the Metropolitan Washington Board of Trade, the Federal City COuncil, Army Corps of Engineers, National Society of Professional Engineers, District of Columbia Women Voters, Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission and the Fairfax Country Water Authority.
Citizens are invited to attend the meeting and tell local leaders they think should be done to help solve the area's growing water supply problem.
