Group Wants to Improve Water Quality, Save Reservoirs

December 05, 1991

I was surprised to note Mr. Bennett Kayser's letter on the proposed new recreation center for Silver Lake (Times, Nov. 14) and his charges about the position of the Committee to Save Silver Lake's Reservoirs on this issue.

Since our group is focused on the reservoir issue, it is not our role to offer an opinion on traffic, organized community sports, "peewee" T-ball or any other of the numerous things mentioned in his letter. We have, however, taken a stance on one simple issue.

Three of the 3.9 acres that make up the Department of Recreation and Parks' new plan are actually owned by the Department of Water and Power, and this land may be needed for the relocation of existing facilities or the development of non-intrusive water improvement options.

We believe there are ways to expand recreational opportunities without compromising our ability to pursue solutions to our water quality problems in the most flexible manner possible. Because of this, the CSSLR board voted to oppose any Recreation and Parks plan that restricts our quest to achieve an improvement in water quality without destroying Silver Lake and Ivanhoe reservoirs.
