Radio Host Sharon Kleyne Says New Law Can Serve as a Model for Future Legislation. Water Life Science® Advocate Sharon Kleyne Calls Water #1 Infrastructure Priority.
Sharon Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, recognized around the world as the global expert on dehydration of the eyes and skin due to excessive evaporation of the body’s water vapor, is also a relentless advocate for making water our number one infrastructure priority.
That’s why she was delighted when President Barack Obama signed the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act into law on December 16th, 2016. She expects that the new President, Donald Trump, and his administration will build on this commitment and go even farther, making water our number one infrastructure priority throughout the U.S.
WIIN authorizes vital water projects across the country to restore watersheds, improve waterways and flood control and improve drinking water infrastructure. The law also authorizes $170 million for communities facing drinking water emergencies, including funding for Flint, Michigan, to recover from the lead contamination in its drinking water system. WINN also includes four Indian water rights settlements that resolve long-standing claims to water and the conflicts surrounding those claims, address the needs of Native Communities, fulfill the Federal trust responsibility to American Indians and provide a sound base for greater economic development for both the affected tribes and their non-Indian neighbors.
WIIN also contains short-term and long-term provisions related to addressing the continuing drought in California. In the long-term, it invests in a number of water projects to promote water storage and supply, flood control, desalination, and water recycling. These projects will help assure that California is more resilient in the face of growing water demands and drought-based uncertainty.
Sharon Kleyne, America’s leading water educator, researcher and advocate and the host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on Voice America, believes that WIIN is a step in the right direction, but that the nation needs to expand its efforts and make a strong commitment to water as our number one infrastructure priority. Kleyne also wants listeners and readers to create a new, healthy Water Life Science® lifestyle; she encourages them to visit http://www.biologicaqua.com for more information about this new water technology and water lifestyle. “Get educated,” says Kleyne. “Lack of education,” Kleyne continued, “is the biggest obstacle to better health and better governance.”
