Why was my comment removed from Women of Water?
Women of Water is a positive place for members (and the general public if they happen to wander over here!) to share ideas, have lively discussions, and connect with others in the water industry in Utah. Though we encourage constructive criticism and friendly debates, our priority is to keep this a safe place where people feel comfortable engaging with others in the community.  So, if we think (or hear from others) that your comment is thoughtless or offensive, we had to remove it.
