Water in Eastern North Carolina Endangered?

Last Thursday, I ran a guest commentary by Fern Shubert entitled, "How Hard Is This Puzzle? " that reported on the problems with water some people are experiencing in the eastern part of the state. Now there is this piece of news from WNCT-TV located in Greenville, North Carolina:

Members of Chowan County’s Republican Party, state ecologists and former state Senator Fern Shubert blame a combination of things for it.

One of the biggest has been drought.

They also say the way land is being used, heavy metals in fields, water testing, and sink holes add to the concern.

The environmentally conscious group made their point during a meeting held last week in Chowan County.
