Your editorial "The Growing Need for Deeper Involvement" (Jan. 28) is right on target in pointing out the consequences of an unreliable water supply for the Southern California business community. This unstable resource, coupled with the lack of affordable housing, environmental restrictions, an untrained work force and a recession-bound economy, are beginning to weigh heavily on the minds and pocketbooks of local business leaders.
But their concern is not enough. The business community must begin to realize that its very survival may depend on its involvement in these tough issues.
Southern California needs the strong arm of the business community to help influence state legislators into action, before our economy literally dries up.
JOHN K. FLYNN, Chairman, Southern California Water Committee, Irvine
