While re-publishing some of the corrupted links and files something occurred to me as far as chronological history and ANY IMPORTANCE that SEWER SERVICE AREA MAP might have represented. (above)
NEW EXCHEQUER DAM
The new exchequer dam was completed in 1967 and undoubtedly many uninformed, and likely intentionally misinformed, property purchasers were led to believe a tremendous amount of MERCED RIVER WATER would be available for miscellaneous developments, both public and private. The area was crazy with speculative developments near the “under construction” Lake Don Pedro subdivision.
SURFACE WATER TREATMENT PLANT
In 1968 Boise Cascade constructed the surface water treatment plant and it was governed by its subsidiary Pacific Cascade, in March of 1968 the Merced Irrigation District assigned the 5,000 acre feet of MERCED RIVER WATER per year to Sierra Highlands Water Company, then in September the California Public Utilities Commission approved water service to Tuolumne Unit 2 with a certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity. T2 was the first LDP subdivision unit to receive approval for water service.
FOR US, NOT YOU
Unfortunately, as things progressed it became quite apparent to other property owners that only the Lake Don Pedro residential subdivision was planned to receive the impounded MERCED RIVER WATER behind the new exchequer dam. Property owners and investors outside the subdivision were furious that their plans could not be achieved without access to that water! So much was going to be stored and they wanted some!
HUGE LDP SUBDIVISION GROWING
In October of 1968 portions of the LAKE DON PEDRO subdivision were still being developed as clearly documented by virtue of the Sturtevant agreement for placement of another water tank on their ranch property to serve that area of the blossoming subdivision. That written agreement provided 10 water meters for future service to that specific ranch property in exchange for land and easements necessary for the water tank placement yet several unrelated properties to that agreement somehow obtained meters and/or service between the years 1972-1993.
Those water meters were subsequently, and wrongfully, charged against (subtracted from) the Sturtevant 10 meter agreement on file with the district. [Actually the District could not locate and/or produce those records when requested by the Sturtevant Ranch which had to produce their copies and have them re-entered into District records. This is called a clue.]
Because of the fact those wrongfully appropriated meters were not discovered until 2002 the water service was evidently permitted to continue for those properties even though clearly not intended to receive the Sturtevant meters. District records are sketchy regarding the actual acquisition and to this day contain inaccurate information regarding how, when and where water service was approved and furnished for many properties in that immediate area – even outside the Sturtevant meter agreement.
CALIFORNIA PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION (CPUC)
Between 1968 and 1971 the CPUC approved a number of unit additions to the Lake Don Pedro residential subdivision to be served by the Sierra Highlands Water Company. This naturally further infuriated owners outside the service area who desired some of that massive amount of MERCED RIVER WATER collecting behind the new dam.
HERE IS WHERE THE 1971 MARIPOSA SEWER SERVICE MAP MAY BECOME IMPORTANT: December 1971 the County of Mariposa had engineer Raymond Vail create the Lake Don Pedro Sewer Zone service map (above). Surely the County was aware of the numerous property owners in the general area who were very angry they could not obtain water. Some undoubtedly unaware of the MERCED RIVER WATER designation and its implications – they just wanted water for their land development projects.
Then in October 1973 there was an agreement between Sierra and the Lake Don Pedro Owners Association for use of Lake Gregoris, however, information ultimately furnished to the State of California Water Board apparently incorrectly detailed the existence of that “Lake”, which is actually a pond, because it surely was not created and maintained by the creek stated in paperwork.
In 1975 Pacific Cascade transferred all remaining facilities and assets to Sierra Highlands Water Company.
The June 15, 1978 Merced Irrigation District Map for domestic water consumption clearly identifies the Sierra Highlands Water Company service boundaries which were, again, essentially the LDP subdivision and golf course.
In February of 1980 Mariposa County LAFCo recommended approval of the Lake Don Pedro Community Services District (LDPCSD) on condition that the CSD create a zone of benefit for sewer service (the 1971 map by Raymond Vail above) for future development needs.
Sierra Highlands then petitions the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to transfer all its assets to the LDPCSD and on August 19, 1980 Mariposa County approves the LDPCSD as a public agency. (Tuolumne County recognizes LDPCSD on August 26, 1980).
September 2, 1980 the former general manager of Sierra Highlands is appointed as the LDPCSD’s first GM and on September 19, 1980 an application was filed with the CPUC to authorize Sierra to transfer and assign all property to the LDPCSD.
THIS APPEARS VERY IMPORTANT AS WELL
Curiously, LDPCSD Meeting minutes from September 2 1980 to July 2, 1981 were mysteriously condensed without adequate explanation as to the major operations being conducted.
Then on October 11, 1980 a request for a special hearing was made to the CPUC because of a Lake Don Pedro Owners Association (LDPOA) change in the board of directors, and the LDPOA was apparently prepared to withdraw support for the transfer of assets to the new LDPCSD by Sierra Highlands.
This is also very interesting because it was through the LDPOA that the whole concept of changing Sierra Highlands Water Company which was a private company into a PUBIC AGENCY was developed and pursued. Apparently those pushing for the “TO BE FORMED CSD PUBLIC AGENCY” were extremely disappointed with the vast property holdings which would not be served water due to the legal description of the SIERRA HIGHLANDS SERVICE AREA TO BE APPROVED BY THE CPUC. Apparently, what areas could be served and how much it might cost customers of the newly formed district were issues that threatened to “pull the plug” on the whole deal if acceptable answers not provided. The CPUC refused the special hearing and ultimately approved the transfer.
On January 21, 1981 the CPUC approved the Sierra Highlands transfer to the LDPCSD and immediately after many adjacent and nearby angry property owners wanted to annex into the new district for water service.
JUNE 1981 CSD ATTORNEY OPINION
Yet in June 1981 meeting minutes the LDPCSD attorney confirmed that properties outside the CPUC approved previous service area of Sierra Highlands could not be served water by the new public district. There were provisions to possibly make minor changes, but for the most part, the MERCED RIVER WATER was to be used exclusively within the LDPCSD approved service boundary. Not only were local property owners angry they couldn’t receive this accumulating vast storage of MERCED RIVER WATER but those downstream of the new dam also voiced opposition to any further diversions of “their water” for farming, industry, recreation, environment and other uses. The war over MERCED RIVER WATER in Lake Don Pedro was only beginning.
NOW finally to my point, consider this:
Mariposa County commissioned the same engineer who drew up the sewer service map for the Lake Don Pedro area in 1971, Raymond Vail, to also perform a survey for the newly forming LDPCSD and to create a water service boundary map. (Which disappeared shortly after the district was formed and has been missing for near 40 years! Many would call this a “clue”.)
QUESTION: How could Mariposa County possibly later contend it wasn’t aware of the service restriction problems with MERCED RIVER WATER in the Lake Don Pedro subdivision area?
WORSE YET, how could Mariposa County (and Tuolumne) reasonably approve annexations to the LDPCSD after August 15, 1983 when all those prior water service regulatory restrictions were consolidated in written form in the State issued water license 11395 still held by the Merced Irrigation District?
LET US BUILD IT HERE
Further, the County of Mariposa was evidently aware it would eventually require more land for a larger sewer system in the Don Pedro area and indicated that two approximate 40 acre parcels of land (bottom left corner of map) would be utilized – one already owned by the County and the other to be acquired in the future as documented in the above 1971 map. The system was to provide sewer service for the homes that would be constructed around the golf course.
What is more, why would Mariposa chose to develop property clearly OUTSIDE the permitted service area of the LDPCSD for a sewer system which it (not surprisingly) made a condition of acquisition by the then proposed CSD in order to even achieve formation as a public entity in 1980?
(And the Mariposa County Grand Jury later had the audacity and gall to characterize the LDPCSD as the “problem child of Mariposa County?”
Who the hell did it think were its frigg’n parents?!)
In other words, why attempt to force a proposed Community Services District into accepting a sewer plant (as a condition to formation) that was clearly outside the legal service area of the CPUC approval, and later water license 11395, and would constitute a stumbling block for future operations?
Was the county merely passing that “hot potato” to the new CSD and to all the current and future unsuspecting property owners of the subdivision that were legally the “MANDATORY AND FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE CUSTOMERS” of that proposed CSD?
NOT EVEN PAYING FOR WHAT WATER USED
Recall also that it was discovered many years after the sewer treatment facility was operational that it was not paying for the water actually being utilized for treatment, and it was financially failing due to a lack of paying resident-customers around the golf course. This of course forced the county to pay the difference to keep the system operational. Why did this happen you might ask, because those speculative and model homes were permitted to be constructed despite the clear violation of existing LDPOA CC&Rs which were designed to prevent homes from being built without “move-in ready residents” all set to start paying fees for the sewer service.
(Oh yeah….and that little issue of disposing of “leachate” [leachate defined] from the Mariposa County Land Fill with numerous tanker loads quietly dumped into that treatment facility in Don Pedro and the costly replacement of system components in such a short period of time.)
LDPOA OWNERS TO BE STUCK WITH THE BILLS
So once again, it sure seems like innocent property purchasers in the Lake Don Pedro subdivision were essentially “set up” victims in the sense that there were numerous invisible financial strings attached to their property purchase which were not clearly made known to them at the time of purchase.
Wouldn’t such facts constitute “known disclosures” now for a prospective property purchaser? You would think so.
YOU KNEW WHEN YOU BOUGHT
Ironically, the LDPOA’s traditional response to an owner who complained about the unfairness of a particular CC&R (or its apparent selective enforcement) was inevitably answered with “you knew when you bought your property” which is patently untrue. Sure, they may have been provided governing documents at the time of purchase (however, some clearly were not), but other hidden financial responsibilities certainly were not explained such as the “Groundwater substitution program” that is now required for all properties annexed into the Community Services District outside the place of use under 11395 which obviously are precluded from receiving MERCED RIVER WATER.
NOT OUR FAULT
Another piece of evidence to support the allegation that there was knowledge as to these facts are the “no liability disclosure statements” inserted into some of the property annexations approved by the County of Mariposa during the early years of the district’s operation. In the mid 1980s a statement was included in approved property development annexations to the CSD that made it clear the county would not be held liable if the property owner ultimately could not receive water from the CSD for their project. That was an issue between the property owner, the LDPCSD and the Merced Irrigation District, which again, is the holder of water license 11395.
Approve developments and instruct the newly formed CSD to provide water which it legally could not – but the county washes it’s hands as not responsible?
MID WAS NOT THE PROBLEM
FURTHERMORE, the MID obviously could not willy nilly change license restrictions without State Water Board approval which is often a very complicated and expensive proposition due to the numerous entities dependent on that water downstream. (Farmers, industry, recreation, wildlife, etc.)
HERE IS YOUR REWARD FOR TRYING TO HELP
In fact, the onetime MID did legally change those restrictions in Lake Don Pedro (for the South Shore Project – 2,010 acres with 772 acre feet of water per year that never developed anyway and our District was not adequately reimbursed for costs) they (MID) ended up with a water audit by the State due to information discovered during those proceedings which indicated the MID was not following the current requirements for environmental releases of water for wildlife.
Geez. Bet they were not too happy – especially since it was reluctant to support the LDPCSD formation at the start due to the anticipated lack of financial responsibility. Boy! Were they right on the money – so to speak.
AND FOR YOU….
The water audit basically required the LDPCSD to use the original Ranchito Drive ground water well production to replace all the MERCED RIVER WATER that was illegally leaving the approved place of use. MID, as the responsible holder of the license, certainly did not want any expensive State fines for allowing continued misuse of MERCED RIVER WATER regulated under their license.
(Kind of like a parent being held civilly responsible for the damaging actions of their “problem child”.)
GROUNDWATER WELLS NOT A GOOD IDEA HERE
Please also realize, the LDPCSD only had that one well for many years until PETE KAMPA’s board orchestrated return to the LDPCSD in October 2014. Purpose of that “unethical” closed recruitment process? To insure creation of an “ALTERNATE SOURCE OF WATER” with a number of groundwater wells desperately required for further PRIVATE THIRD PARTY outside MIDPOU expansion – YET ALL DEVELOPED WITH PUBLIC FUNDS in the form of government grant money – and intended by the state and federal government grantors for existing customer use during unprecedented drought!
Even the LDPCSD’s hard saved 1 million dollars in four years (after near bankruptcy) was used to leverage those grants. PUBLIC MONEY FOR PRIVATE SPECIAL INTEREST BENEFIT USE AND PROFIT?
What a scam.
MISREPRESENT AND MISAPPROPRIATE
It also certainly appears as though facts of LAKE DON PEDRO’s situation were intentionally misrepresented to secure those grants and once furnished, used for intended expansion purposes rather than the drought threatened existing customers. Also, many people do not realize that the original developer, Boise Cascade, had drilled numerous water wells in an attempt to circumvent those long established restrictions on MERCED RIVER WATER use but abandoned them for lack of sufficient quantity and quality of water.
Yup, sure seems like a good argument can be made that property owners of the Lake Don Pedro Owners Association subdivision have been intentionally set up by a number of entities and individuals to be financially responsible for the special interest benefit of private land developers who were never intended to receive MERCED RIVER WATER – despite what they might proclaim in defense of their decades of repugnant and obstructionist activities harming this district and its paying customers.
Recall my thank you in December of 2014?

This new software is a real time saver as it searches and identifies damaged and/or missing links and files. Sure saves me from having to explore all my blah, blah, blah over the course of years.
Here’s another one viewers could not access that is one of the most important documents regarding this issue: – the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT PLACE OF USE MAP PER WATER LICENSE 11395. MID holds the license and the LDPCSD has pumped MERCED RIVER WATER from Lake Mc Clure since formed as a public agency.
MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT PLACE OF USE (MIDPOU) PER WATER LICENSE 11395 UNDER WHICH THE LDPCSD PUMPS MERCED RIVER WATER FROM LAKE McCLURE
JANUARY 23, 2017 update
SOME NEW SOFTWARE WAS INSTALLED TODAY TO CHECK FOR OTHER SUSPICIOUS LINK FAILURES
(UPGRADED SOME WEBSITE SECURITY ISSUES AS WELL)
FOUND ANOTHER INACCESSIBLE DOCUMENT THAT KAMPA & KOMPANY TWICE ATTEMPTED TO ABOLISH SO THAT THE NEWLY PRODUCED GROUNDWATER
(THIS “ALTERNATE SOURCE OF WATER” WAS PRODUCED WITH NEW GROUNDWATER WELLS CONSTRUCTED WITH PUBLIC FUNDS FROM STATE AND FEDERAL GRANTS SPECIFICALLY INTENDED TO ASSIST EXISTING CUSTOMERS DURING THE DROUGHT – AND NOT TO CREATE NEW SERVICE)
COULD BE USED IN A GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM TO FURNISH WATER TO SPECULATIVE LAND DEVELOPERS OUTSIDE THE PLACE OF USE RESTRICTIONS OF WATER LICENSE 11395
(HELD BY THE MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT)
WHILE CONTINUING TO HAVE THE LEGAL USERS OF MERCED RIVER WATER IN THE LAKE DON PEDRO RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION PAY FOR THIS SPECIAL BENEFIT WATER SERVICE PROGRAM FOR PRIVATE THIRD PARTY LAND DEVELOPERS! (NOT OTHERWISE ENTITLED TO LDPCSD WATER)
WHAT IS A GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM?
SINCE MERCED RIVER WATER CANNOT LEGALLY BE DIVERTED AND SERVED OUTSIDE THE LDP SUBDIVISION, FOR EVERY UNIT THAT IS DELIVERED OUTSIDE THE LEGAL PLACE OF USE IN THE SUBDIVISION, AN EQUAL OR GREATER UNIT MUST BE PUMPED FROM GROUNDWATER WELLS TO REPLACE WHAT WAS DELIVERED OUTSIDE THE PLACE OF USE.
IN OTHER WORDS, IF AN ACRE FOOT OF MERCED RIVER WATER IS DELIVERED OUTSIDE THE SUBDIVISION TO A PROPERTY THAT IS NOT LEGALLY ENTITLED TO THE MERCED RIVER WATER UNDER WATER LICENSE 11395, AN ACRE FOOT OF WATER MUST BE PUMPED FROM THE GROUND TO REPLACE THE ACRE FOOT DELIVERED.
WHY HAVE LAKE DON PEDRO OWNERS ASSOCIATION PROPERTY OWNERS IN THE SUBDIVISION (FOR WHOM THAT SURFACE WATER TREATMENT PLANT WAS DESIGNED, CONSTRUCTED AND INTENDED TO SERVE) BEEN PAYING FOR THIS SPECIAL BENEFIT WATER SERVICE FOR THOSE NOT ENTITLED TO MERCED RIVER WATER IN THE FIRST PLACE?
WHY DON’T THESE OUTSIDE MIDPOU PROPERTY OWNERS JUST CONSTRUCT THEIR OWN GROUNDWATER WELLS FOR THEIR LAND DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS?
(WHICH THE MAJORITY OF “MANDATORY” LDPCSD CUSTOMERS IN THE SUBDIVISION ARE PROHIBITED FROM DOING)
BECAUSE GROUND WELLS IN THIS AREA ARE EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE AND TRADITIONALLY UNRELIABLE AND THEY CAN MAKE MORE MONEY WITH THEIR DEVELOPMENTS IF THE UNKNOWING PROPERTY OWNERS OF THE SUBDIVISION JUST CONTINUE TO PAY FOR THIS SPECIAL INTEREST/BENEFIT WATER SERVICE!
AND PLEASE UNDERSTAND, THAT DOESN’T JUST MEAN DELIVERING THE WATER, BUT ALSO THE MAINTENANCE, REPAIR, UPGRADES, TESTING AND EVENTUAL REPLACEMENT COSTS AS WELL – ALL PAID FOR BY THOSE IN THE SUBDIVISION WHO DO NOT REQUIRE THIS SPECIAL BENEFIT GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM!
INSTITUTIONALIZED FRAUD AGAINST
THE INNOCENT PROPERTY OWNERS
IN THE SUBDIVISION FOR ALMOST 40 YEARS!
Apr 15 2013 RESOLUTION 2013-4 (Prohibiting further expansion of outside MID POU water service)
PLEASE ALSO NOTICE THAT THE TWO REMAINING LDPCSD DIRECTORS WHO ORCHESTRATED PETE KAMPA’S RETURN TO THE LDPCSD IN 2014
(TO CREATE THIS ALTERNATE SOURCE OF WATER WITH GOVERNMENT GRANT FUNDS)
DID NOT SUPPORT THE RESOLUTION WHICH WAS THE ONLY LOGICAL OPTION AVAILABLE IN AN ATTEMPT TO STOP THIS CONTINUING CORRUPTION AND FRAUD AGAINST INNOCENT LDPOA OWNERS.
BOTH DIRECTOR EMERY ROSS AND CURRENT BOARD PRESIDENT DANNY JOHNSON HAVE CLEARLY ADVOCATED EXPANDING WATER SERVICE EVEN FURTHER OUTSIDE THE LEGAL PLACE OF USE UNDER 11395.
IN FACT, PETE KAMPA WAS INVOLVED WITH SUCH OUTSIDE MIDPOU EXPANSION 20 YEARS AGO WHEN HE WAS FIRST EMPLOYED WITH THE LDPCSD WHEN STARTING HIS INFAMOUS WATER CAREER – APPROXIMATELY 10,000 ACRES WORTH!
EXISTING DOCUMENTATION CLEARLY ILLUSTRATES PETE KAMPA HAS APPARENTLY MISREPRESENTED DISTRICT INFORMATION MANY TIMES TO COUNTIES, THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA AND EVEN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO PURSUE HIS (AND HIS SUPPORTERS) DREAM OF A “WATER EMPIRE” IN THESE DROUGHT PRONE SIERRA NEVADA FOOTHILLS.
TODAY IS JANUARY 23, 2017 AND CUSTOMERS ARE STILL WAITING FOR THE ORIGINAL LDPCSD WATER SERVICE BOUNDARY MAP WHICH DISAPPEARED SHORTLY AFTER THIS DISTRICT WAS FORMED IN 1980. PETE KAMPA EVEN LEFT HIS FIRST TOUR OF EMPLOYMENT HERE WITHOUT SECURING AND PROVIDING THIS MAP AS HE SAID HE WOULD. HE HAS NOW DEVISED A PLAN WHERE THIS SIMPLE MAP (WHICH WILL CLEARLY SHOW WHICH PROPERTIES ARE OUTSIDE THE ORIGINAL INTENDED SERVICE AREA) IS GOING TO COST LDPCSD CUSTOMERS OVER $10,000!
THIS IS BULLSHIT MY FRIENDS.
AND WE CONTINUE TO PAY FOR IT!
Saturday, Sunday morning, January 21st, 22nd, 2017 from the heart update note:
I discovered yesterday afternoon (Saturday) many more important documents and postings were not accessible from TIME LINE links and when selected only reported the error:
“Sorry you are not allowed to preview drafts”,
which is quite interesting since they were not “DRAFTS” but “PUBLISHED” working links to pages until some peculiar difficulties occurred outside my control. Those responsible are no doubt the same type of low-life characters who would burn down a public agency office, fabricate, misrepresent, and destroy official government records, have the ability to prevent United States Postal Service certified mail from being properly delivered, and have an intimate “hands on” interest in creating and continuing the apparent fraud against the legal MERCED RIVER WATER customers of the LDP subdivision for whom that surface water treatment plant was designed to serve.
OK, I’ll play their game and just republish them in an easier to see and access format so they will stand out better.
Despite the many hours of extra work perhaps I should be appreciative that some
one fu@%1ng a$$hule(s) has/have been (unintentionally) kind enough to identify which documents they believe important enough to sabotage.
You will obviously recognize which links were nonfunctional due to the
strike out of the old link and the new white WordPress boxed links inserted for easier visibility.
Hundreds of millions of dollars at stake? Conceivably under estimated. Hell, could be far more than that when you consider the entire issue and how many entities and individuals (public and private) would be required to create and maintain decades of “INSTITUTIONALIZED FRAUD & CORRUPTION” the LAKE DON PEDRO COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT appears to represent. Consider also how such corruption might dovetail into other facets of business and government that most of us might otherwise consider completely legitimate.
Geez, when you think about it fu@%1ing with a low level, nonprofit, private, individually operated website is child’s play to such crooked and unethical a$$hules, but more on that later, back to the Time Line clean up.
Below is the material I REPUBLISHED on Saturday-Sunday (January 21-22) 2017. This is not the first time I have had to go back and republish postings that have been compromised by an unknown third party. Years ago I found out what the main problem was that permitted such interruption – I was not upgrading the software program regularly and known vulnerabilities were exploited by hackers with malicious material being inserted on the website server. Since that time I have enlisted paid professional assistance with fantastic results but I know some of these links were working just a few months ago. (Last December the Merced Irrigation District Place of Use Map suddenly disappeared from a posting and after replacing it I checked many of the other links and all were fine.) I also am aware there were a couple of instances of the “server being down” due to some problems just before the first of the year and have inquired as to what could have happened at that level and am waiting for a response.
Years ago intrusion damage consisted of a wide array of material, important documents along with “fluff” photographs and writings, but I did not make a list of what was missing or damaged and just repaired what I could and moved on. This time I made a list of what was messed up and it is quite interesting as to what it entails – far more specific information. I figure if someone thought the material worthy enough to mess up, maybe I should not only republish it, but emphasize what it was. Therefore, below is what has been republished recently.
Take some time, read the material and consider what someone did not want viewers to read or understand.
What do you think?
Is the information relevant to the apparent fraud and corruption I have been writing about for years now?
Yes, such destruction of many hours of work is extremely annoying, frustrating and it pisses me off, but you know what…? It also makes me laugh because when you receive flak it indicates you are over the target.
Here is a photo of designer jewelry some might be sporting (again?) in the near future:
RAYMOND VAIL ENGINEER – SEWER ZONE NO 1 MARIPOSA COUNTY SERVICE AREA DO
RAYMOND VAIL ENGINEER: 1971 SEWER ZONE NO 1 MARIPOSA COUNTY SERVICE AREA DON PEDRO 1-M MAP
What a coincidence! This was the same engineer that created the original LAKE DON PEDRO COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT AREA SERVICE MAP FOR THE COUNTY THAT MYSTERIOUSLY DISAPPEARED SHORTLY AFTER THE DISTRICT WAS FORMED BY MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCo in 1980. Strange isn’t it? Why didn’t the LAFCos of TUOLUMNE and MARIPOSA have copies of this extremely important map for their mutually formed COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT? LAFCo paid for the survey and map yet it has been missing for decades? Then later the county requests the LDPCSD to furnish them a map of where the DISTRICT CLAIMS IT CAN SERVE MERCED RIVER WATER? Maybe the map was unavailable because the counties were approving annexations to the new district for water service clearly OUTSIDE THE MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT PLACE OF USE UNDER WATER LICENSE 11395? Yet these counties were directing the LDPCSD to serve MERCED RIVER WATER outside the legal boundary set by the CALIFORNIA STATE WATER RESOURCES CONTROL BOARD which is charged with controlling and regulating water licenses? Think about that for a moment.

DECEMBER 21, 2016 UPDATE: Just discovered the MID Map to the above link was also detached from the post and AWOL (Absent without leave) although still present in the document library. Pretty difficult to check everything written in all these years. Very strange also because the insignificant photographs and documents never seem affected. Oh well, just another one of those peculiar Lake Don Pedro related co-incidences. (riiiiiiighhhhhht – as Austin Powers would say – lol) Anyway, the map is again available for comparison of what the CPUC approved as the District’s water service area (previously Sierra Highlands Water Company) and what the Place of Use is/was under water license 11395 held by the Merced Irrigation District under which the LDPCSD has pumped water from Lake McClure since formation as a public agency.
