We tend to take the most precious things for granted.
Among these precious things is the supply of fresh pure drinking water.
A lot of care and cost go in to making this water available to every household and place of business on demand, 24 hours a day at the flick of a faucet.
This may not be among the most glorious topics, but it is a crucial responsibility of municipal government, as it falls within ensuring the protection of health and safety.
As we move forward into the 21st century, it is time for us to treat what is precious with greater respect.
This includes giving ourselves the means to encourage greater conservation.
Metered water use does just that. Paying for what we use encourages us to use less.
Our current pay by the number of water outlets you have is an out-dated system which penalizes too many who use much less water than others who have fewer outlets in their homes but who use more water.
Water meters are a part of the new greener Cornwall which is moving forward towards the future.
What do you think Cornwall? Do you agree with Ms Clement?
