P5 LDPCSD NOV 20 2017 – Why bother? (You know I’m going to explain anyway so might as well get comfortable right? lol)
If by chance any viewer might wonder why I bother to make LAKE DON PEDRO COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT monthly meeting reports any longer –
(considering the California State Water Board already conducted a detailed investigation into the Water License PLACE OF USE matter; confirmed violations; and is ordering Kampa to answer some very important questions, many of which have been repeatedly asked of the district through the decades by other concerned MERCED RIVER WATER ENTITLED CUSTOMERS – who never received legitimate answers or action to their complaints),
the explanation is relatively simple:
PETE KAMPA and his supporters have not stopped their efforts to use the new EMERGENCY GROUNDWATER WELL PRODUCTION for further expansion of outside Place of Use LAFCo annexed properties.
In fact if you listen carefully you will hear comments by GM/BOARD about developing even more of these extremely expensive groundwater wells because the GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION DEMAND NECESSARY FOR THE OUTSIDE PLACE OF USE PROPERTIES IS INCREASING ALREADY WITH SOME SERVICES HAVING NEVER BEEN REPORTED IN THE MANDATORY COMPLIANCE REPORT.
WE HAVE BEEN LIED TO SINCE DAY ONE.
KAMPA KNOWS MOST, IF NOT ALL, OF THE REASONS FOR OUR MASSIVE WATER LOSS ALL THESE YEARS.
AND HE WAS A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR IN THE MASSIVE DISTRICT EXPANSION BETWEEN (1994-1997)
These people simply do not tell, much less want to discuss, the truth because facts clearly do not support what they have been doing for many years – cheating entitled users by:
- obstructing relevant district progress
- providing water service outside POU of water license
- SUBSTITUTING MERCED RIVER WATER WITH EXPENSIVE GROUNDWATER
- and finally, forcing MR WECs to PAY FOR IT ALL!
SERIOUSLY VIEWERS, IS THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITY SOMETHING WE AS CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY (AND THE TAXPAYERS WHO WILL ALWAYS PAY FOR THE RESULTING DAMAGES) WANT OUR OATH SWORN PUBLIC OFFICIALS (AND THEIR CONTRACT PAID PRIVATE COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES) TO BE INVOLVED?
PETE KAMPA FOR OVER A YEAR
(despite multiple recorded OPEN MEETING requests
to seek correct information from the State Water Board)
ATTEMPTED TO FABRICATE and FALSELY REPRESENT THE
WATER LICENSE PLACE OF USE for MERCED RIVER WATER
IN AN OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT DOCUMENT IN ORDER TO CONTINUE, AND INCREASE
GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTIONS TO LAFCo ANNEXED PROPERTIES
WITH WHICH HE HAD BEEN INVOLVED 20 YEARS EARLIER
AS A LAKE DON PEDRO CSD EMPLOYEE.
Kind of like an INSIDER TRADING sort of thing in financial circles. Sure Kampa KNEW THE TRUTH about the water license but he also knew other things far more important: the VULNERABILITIES OF THE COMMUNITY which made it ripe for KAMPA’s type of work – deceitful and behind the scene PUBLIC BETRAYAL FOR PRIVATE BENEFIT. He already had a board majority prior to the public presentation when hired. Kampa was the Board’s ringer.
Look at recent assistance PETE KAMPA received which helps in concealing his actual motivations for developing groundwater wells. He must be telling the truth right? How else could one receive a coveted “TRANSPARENCY AWARD” from the CSDA (CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICT ASSOCIATION). Psst! Where Pete has been an active Board Member for approximately twenty years?
What an achievement.
REMINDS ME OF THAT SONG ABOUT
AN INJURED SAFETY BOARD PRESIDENT
WHO AWARDS HIMSELF A SAFETY ACHIEVEMENT CERTIFICATE
IN THE HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM
AS PHYSICIANS REATTACH A RATHER SIGNIFICANT PORTION
OF RECENTLY PRODUCED “PINOCCHIO SYNDROME” NOSE GROWTH”,
WHICH HAD BEEN ACCIDENTALLY SEVERED
(WITH A PAIR OF LARGE BATTERY OPERATED FABRIC SHEARS)
AS HE GROOMED HIS MUSTACHE WHILE STANDING IN THE BED
OF A SPEEDING PICKUP WITH BAD SHOCKS DOWN
A DARK AND BUMPY UNPAVED RURAL COUNTY ROAD,
WHEN THE TRUCK’S EXTREMELY INTOXICATED DRIVER
SUDDENLY AWOKE AND SPONTANEOUSLY REFLEX-LIKE GRABBED FOR
FOR A CELL PHONE, LOST CONTROL AND SMASHED HEAD ON INTO A
LARGE RED, WHITE AND BLUE METAL TRASH CONTAINER
FILLED TO CAPACITY WITH
COUNTERFEIT GOVERNMENT SERVICE AREA BOUNDARY MAPS
AND EMPTY BOTTLES OF PAPER WHITE OUT AND ENERGY DRINKS.
YOU KNOW THAT ONE?
Depressing, amateurish – a repetitively styled attempt at something close to music?
Heck, 20 years ago KAMPA was “misrepresenting the truth” when he worked here the first time, and now?
The same Pete Kampa
telling the same worn out lies
about the SAME LEGAL PLACE OF USE.
Can you imagine THE WASTED MONEY, TIME, EFFORT and RESOURCES PETE KAMPA HAS COST
STATE & FEDERAL GOVERNMENT?
AND GUESS WHO PAYS FOR THIS “INTENTIONAL WRONGFUL ACTIVITY”?
All because PETE KAMPA SIMPLY REFUSES to abide by clear regulations and restrictions.
Yup, the cheaters are doubling down and deserve recognition for their efforts.
I, as do many viewers, also have more personal reasons for objecting to such outrageous betrayal by public employees and their contracted “less than professional” representatives, managers, consultants, etc. – basically because their activities disrupt, make more difficult, perhaps even completely destroy other unrelated facets in our own private individual and already unpredictable lives. For example, when my almost 10 year old GSD (German Shepherd Dog) was passing due to that Degenerative Myelopathy disease – (paralysis starting with the tail and progressively working up to the brain stem. NOTE: Breeders can test for that now.) – I already had plenty on my plate without the worry and extra work of watching and reporting on what those low life cheats were doing within our local CSD, but I balanced both with my GSD always taking priority – right up to the end.
I quit going to meetings for about a year. Why continue the heartache and frustration? I had honestly completed the four year term with honesty and integrity despite the relentless (and some times ludicrous) personal attacks by particular members of the SO GOSIP (Same Old Group Of Special Interest People). I had held my ground that further OUTSIDE POU GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION was unfair to the MERCED RIVER WATER ENTITLED CUSTOMERS of the subdivision. I was not AGAINST the desires of others, but worked for, and was “FOR”, the rights of MR WECs.
During my term I learned some GRAND JURIES would do a great job despite significant outside pressures, while others could be politically skewed to the point of intentionally avoiding and confronting reported problems due to the potential special interest ramifications from any needed scrutiny or correction. When a “skewed” jury (primarily the foreman I understand) drew a line between my FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS on my own personal blog which I had operated for years, or being a PUBLIC OFFICIAL, I decided right then and there during that telephone conversation (never met the SOB in person or appeared before “his jury” but knew he was absolutely wrong) I would never voluntarily* hold any form of government position again. There will always be those of questionable integrity already tapped into the system who are quite capable of protecting their turf with the authority and power to utilize public resources for private benefit, besides, exposing what they are doing as clearly wrong is probably more effective at stopping the activity than trying to change the system from within. Everything takes time, especially when attempting to untangle disinformation and identify sources and motivations. The correction of decades of compounded deceit and concealment by those supposedly “doing the people’s work” may eventually be exposed, but then again I’m sure we can all recall serious questions that have never been answered about a variety of subjects which simply do not make sense as presented.
*Voluntarily? OH SURE— lol @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
YOU SEE….IN THE FUTURE….(chuckle) regarding government OFFICIALLY TITLED POSITIONS that are “HANDS ON/FRONT LINE DESIGNATED” SERVICE TO THE PEOPLE type environments, the OFFICIALS are not only ELECTED BY THE PUBLIC AT LARGE or APPOINTED by DEPARTMENT/AGENCY SUPERVISORS, many are also SENTENCED BY SUPERIOR COURT JUDGES. Yup. Very common in the future. You see, TCPSPs (Termed Correctional Public Service Punishment) are local and fresh! Right from the Judge’s GAVEL!
“I find you guilty of intentionally betraying the public trust of your former government position and hereby sentence you to a 4 Year TCPSP (audience GASP!) of providing unpaid professional services to the Lake Dip Shit Community Services District (LDSCSD), Deeper Shit, California 95ICU2 and within whose city limits you will also permanently reside and live until formal notice of release by this court. Failure to abide by the detailed job descriptions and conditions accompanying this order will result in further TCPSP promotion as necessary.
Sneak out of town for a “quickie something”?
How does promotion to weekend Animal Control Difficulty Response Officer sound?
Didn’t think anyone noticed you missed the third special sub committee meeting regarding the Mosquito Noise Abatement Investigative Report last month Chaired by Mrs. Perkin’s son-in-law?
Congratulations! You are now also the Chief Operational Custodian for the Hogwash Fecal Matter Recycling CoOP!”
Thinking about that concert in the neighboring county next year? Boy does the JUDGE HAVE A NEW JOB FOR YOU!
Yes the future undoubtedly holds many surprises. Now back to our regularly scheduled posting already in progress.
Ugh, me need sleep.
LET’s SEE…..finished term,…sick of them….my dog is dead (such comments always remind me of Country Songs) ,… oh yeah, so I was done with the LDPCSD and resumed the preferred work around the crib and property until I read – excuse me for a sec….
[IMPORTANT NOTE TO SELF: HEY DUMB ASS! NEXT TIME YOU DECIDE TO “DROP OUT” – BE SURE TO STOP THE NEWSPAPER AND CANCEL CSD ELECTRONIC AGENDA DELIVERIES – MAYBE GET RID OF THE TELEVISION…….AND COMPUTER TOO……PROBABLY WOULDN’T NEED A TELEPHONE THEN EITHER….PAY TO HAVE FOOD DELIVERED AND TRASH HAULED AWAY…… lol]
……KAMPA & KOMPANY’S attempt to rescind RESOLUTION 2013-4 (PROHIBITION ON FURTHER SERVICE OUTSIDE THE POU WITH GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION). YUP, they were going to use the NEW EMERGENCY GROUNDWATER WELLS for OUTSIDE POU LAND DEVELOPERS just as I had always thought. Sure, I wasn’t surprised, my companion GSD was now gone, so I made the time to resume reporting on this group’s mischievous activities. (NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO DO THIS!)
There is always a rippling effect from the intentional injurious acts of others no different than a rock chucked into a quiet pond and I resent those irritating ripples into my life from those who are clearly dishonest yet paid with public funds to do public work – not shady deals with speculative land developers.
REFERENCE TO PRIOR POST ON THE 1996 MEETING MINUTES:
So twenty years ago PETE KAMPA recognized the necessity of placing our primary lake intake pipes closer to the dam in the deepest water possible? Common sense, eh?
He intended to obtain grant funding for this multi-million dollar project back then, but left LDPCSD employment after being caught MISREPRESENTING DISTRICT FACTS TO COUNTY OFFICIALS and proposing major projects and annexations without Board blessing or approval.
FINALLY THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY ARRIVES!
Yet when good ‘ol PETE KAMPA was brought back to Lake Don Pedro CSD after twenty years (THROUGH AN UNETHICAL BOARD ORCHESTRATED CLOSED RECRUITMENT PROCESS – the first clue) and finally had access to the over one MILLION DOLLARS NECESSARY TO LEVERAGE GOVERNMENT GRANTS, along with the PERFECT OPPORTUNITY FOR THE “McCLURE POINT DEEP WATER INTAKE PROJECT” what did Kampa do?
PURSUED PERSONAL/BUSINESS SPECIAL INTERESTS by secretly planning to use
THE ANTICIPATED WATER PRODUCTION from a publicly funded
“EMERGENCY DROUGHT GROUNDWATER PROJECT”
as the “ALTERNATE SOURCE” necessary to provide
SPECIAL BENEFIT GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION SERVICES
to KAMPA’s past private third party land developer associates!
KAMPA EVEN HAD A “sleeping LAFCo approved 900 acre residential subdivision” across the road from the LDPCSD WAITING FOR HIM TO RETURN FOR OVER TWENTY YEARS!
Over twenty years that 1995 annexation information was essentially withheld from the public (MR WECs) while LAFCo continued to publish their maps illustrating that property designated as SOI (Sphere of Influence)?
Why were the resolutions concerning that annexation re-numbered and separated by significant time?
JULY 18th, 2016
What was the nature of the piping project that went through MERCED FALLS ROAD (between that proposed 900 ac subdivision and the LDPCSD facility on the other side of the asphalt)?
Remember, when our monthly meeting was suspiciously held at the high school and Merced Falls Road was supposedly closed to traffic?
Was that alleged road closure approved through the County and State?
Advanced notice to law enforcement and fire agencies in case of emergency?
OR was it just done without required permits and authorization?
You know, like how KAMPA started drilling groundwater wells without County Permits?
During this July 2016 meeting public members asked about fire hydrant flushing which is still a “hot topic”.
SAME LIE BUT A NEW AND EXPENSIVE “HIGH TECH” KAMPA ATTEMPT TO FALSIFY IMPORTANT GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS
Kampa told the LDPCSD board 20 years ago he could serve Merced River Water anywhere in the SOI.
Today he is still trying to do so.
Recently he even attempted to falsify government documents by ENLARGING THE PLACE OF USE BOUNDARY of the water license (utilizing a portion of the $35,000 digital mapping project approved by our generous supporting Board of Defectors) with an obscure Merced Irrigation District “shape file” from an abandoned State “conditionally approved” project 24 years ago which KAMPA just happened to be involved with back then. Good grief!
Naturally KAMPA is now blaming the Merced Irrigation District for producing the map KAMPA misused. Rather like blaming a pair of large fabric shears for clipping off a nose while using them to trim a mustache or nasal hairs.
A sad part of all this KAMPA KRAPA/BOARD deception is some of the programs this REMOTE GM/TREASURER has advocated actually sound like they could be very helpful – BUT FOR ONE VERY IMPORTANT VARIABLE:
Such technology can also be used unethically, indeed criminally, by those dishonest enough to pursue such wrongful behavior.
Kampa is the wrong individual to be given further and/or greater responsibility to misuse for his own personal and business motivations.
SOME MAJOR SUCCESS ALREADY!
For many, many years I have heard such statements as “MID and/or the STATE WATER BOARD” had somehow been provided the wrong LDPCSD WATER SERVICE MAP.
The cry was:
“ALL THIS OTHER PROPERTY WAS SUPPOSED TO BE INCLUDED WHEN THE LDPCSD WAS FORMED – BUT A MISTAKE WAS MADE AND THE LAND WAS LEFT OUT – I DEMAND MY WATER!”
Real Estate business owner Orb Hatton was notorious for making such statements at BOARD MEETINGS and other PUBLIC FORUMS in defense of his two residential subdivisions adjacent to the Lake Don Pedro Owners Association subdivision and in protest to repeated refusals by the district to furnish service. Rem? The illegal “Bridge road” constructed from the subdivision to connect with his proposed adjacent subdivision which resulted in litigation, mitigation, and settlements in the LDPOA’s favor?
“THEY (State) GOT THE WRONG MAP” CRAP
has finally been put to rest with this recent
STATE WATER BOARD NOTICE OF VIOLATION!
All those other OUTSIDE POU properties were
(as always understood by those without special interests)
PLACE OF USE
FOR MERCED RIVER WATER!
HUMM – AND NOT SURPRISING…..JUST LIKE THE CPUC DECISION RULED
JUST LIKE THE CALIFORNIA PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION DECISION! THE APPROVED WATER SERVICE BOUNDARY FOR THE NEW LDPCSD WAS THE SIERRA HIGHLANDS WATER COMPANY SERVICE AREA WHICH WAS THE SUBDIVISION! (CPUC approval of Sierra’s facilities/asset transfer to the LDPCSD was in Jan 1981 – effective Feb 1981 yet Mariposa County LAFCo had apparently already expanded SERVICE BOUNDARIES OUTSIDE THE POU (subdivision) at district formation in August 1980 – APPARENTLY EVEN BEFORE the property was actually transferred by the CPUC decision. This likely explains why NO OFFICIAL WATER SERVICE BOUNDARY MAP exists even though the detailed multi-page metes and bounds survey still exists.
EITHER WAY, the ORIGINAL LDPCSD SERVICE BOUNDARY MAP IS CRITICAL FOR UNDERSTANDING
Either way the map is critical evidence of exactly what had been approved and essentially concealed from the public, especially the thousands of property owners within the LAKE DON PEDRO OWNERS ASSOCIATION who in my mind have been the victims of fraud and corruption for decades. I believe their rights as citizens, tax payers, property owners etc. have been violated in a number of ways. I cringe to think of how many gave up their dreams of living here and sold at a loss because of the flagrant violation of law without accountability which continues today.
In other words, if the map were of the true Place of Use under water license 11395, the residential subdivision and golf course would have been shown as the service area. Question would then be: WHY was district expanded beyond what was originally approved by LAFCo and the CPUC?
But if on the other hand, the map illustrated the expanded boundaries outside the POU/SUBDIVISION, the question would be: How could LAFCo expand the service boundaries before the CPUC approved the transfer which specifically addressed the service area dispute stating such outside agreements were not to become obligations of the new district? How could LAFCo expand beyond the agreed service boundary according to the STATE WATER BOARD?
But I am a dinosaur. Perhaps the values and beliefs I was taught are no longer respected by the majority of people in this country? Sure would explain what I see and hear in the news every single day – and witness at every LDPCSD Board meeting. So disappointing that three directors on the board during the last several months could not have agreed to some variation of:
“GM Kampa is instructed to obtain the official Place of Use Map for water license 11395 from the Merced Irrigation District, and the official LDPCSD water service area map on file with the State Water Board and present both to the Board and public at the next monthly meeting.”
Darn it! Keep forgetting……they either knew or didn’t want to know the truth.
Maybe there is more evil than good?
Ahhhh, life expectancy, the over looked blessing when the world around you no longer makes sense.
My best to you and yours, Lew
