Southern California news papers have printed stories about corruption in the water management agencies.
The fact that corruption exists in local government is nothing new.
The fact that the corruption is so visibly discussed is completely new.
The idea that one water agency would be suing the other agencies is also new. My analysis is that this agency versus agency angst is just starting in California. The state is broke and the agencies are living off bonds which are funded by "investors" like the state and muni government worker pension funds. How much do you want to bet that the pension funds are going "Greek"???
If you live in Southern California, you should visit the following websites:
"The San Diego County Water Authority released 500 pages of documents obtained under the Public Records Act that expose the activities of MWD and the Secret Society because MWD is poised to adopt water rate increases for 2013 and 2014 that use the same discriminatory rate structure formula that enriches the Secret Society’s member agencies at the expense of the Water Authority and the 3.1 million people it serves."
If you thought the silver and gold market was rigged, how do you feel about your water supply being rigged?
You will only survive 3 days without water.
