Have more OUTSIDE MID PLACE OF USE LAFCO ANNEXATIONS been provided water service since the LAKE DON PEDRO CSD was admonished by the State Water Board for continuing to violate the water service restrictions contained in the MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT’s water license 11395 by providing river water outside the subdivision?
How would the legally entitled MERCED RIVER WATER USING “mandatory customers” of the LDPCSD even know if this were happening without the continued publication of the OUTSIDE MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT POU water report in the monthly agenda packet? (Add more LAFCO ANNEXATIONS for water service then develop more expensive groundwater wells, then add more LAFCO ANNEXATIONS…..and develop more expensive groundwater wells…..FOLKS EVEN A CHILD COULD UNDERSTAND SUCH METHOD OF OPERATION IS UNSUSTAINABLE IN A DROUGHT PRONE REGION WHERE GROUNDWATER WELLS FOR SUSTAINED DEVELOPMENT ARE UNRELIABLE!
THE OUTSIDE MIDPOU REPORT – prior to SNEAKY PETE KAMPA’s UNETHICAL RETURN AND ABOLISHMENT OF THAT REPORT WHICH LEGAL CUSTOMERS COULD USE TO MONITOR THE DISTRICT’S EXPANSION OF OUTSIDE POU SERVICES, documented all the properties outside the subdivision and golf course that were receiving water that had to be produced from groundwater sources in order NOT TO VIOLATE THE WATER LICENSE. (Please recall that the State of California water officials eventually discovered (after multiple attempts to prematurely end the investigation and hide the known results) that there were EVEN MORE PROPERTIES INVOLVED than the LDPCSD had been reporting for many years! In other words, the BIG CHEAT was EVEN BIGGER THAN WHAT WAS KNOWN FOR DECADES!
SO? HAVE MORE OF THESE LAFCO ANNEXATIONS BEEN PROVIDED WATER SERVICE QUIETLY?
I’ll ask again……HAVE MORE OPOU LAFCO ANNEXATIONS BEEN ADDED TO THE OUTSIDE PLACE OF USE INVENTORY OF SPECIAL BENEFIT WATER SERVICES SINCE THE ADDITIONAL STATE VIOLATIONS WERE MADE PUBLIC?
Have more of these LAFCO ANNEXATIONS been quietly provided water service which obviously only increases the groundwater demand for a SPECIAL BENEFIT WATER SERVICE – thus requiring even more 1/2 million dollar groundwater wells with the added operational expenses in production, monitoring, testing, treating and reporting to the State Water Board?
How would ANYONE KNOW without that report?
Yet “THEY” want to raise our already over priced water service (due to the substantial cost increases in supplying this subsidized special benefit)?
WHY NO SPECIAL BENEFIT WATER SERVICE ZONE JUST FOR THESE LAFCO ANNEXATIONS?
Why after over 40 years of this “hide and seek” deceptive water service management hasn’t a SPECIAL BENEFIT ZONE been established to provide services to these LAFCO ANNEXATIONS which cannot by law receive MERCED RIVER WATER ONLY? DUH!
Why isn’t there an OUTSIDE MID POU SPECIAL BENEFIT ZONE where all these LAFCO ANNEXATIONS that need water for development can simply pool their resources (share the costs) and provide that more expensive water required for their OUTSIDE POU DEVELOPMENTS?
Seems to me if these folks (outside the legal service area) who want water service for their developments (like the entitled “MANDATORY CUSTOMERS OF THE RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION who can legally receive Merced River water) – they should be organizing to form their own special benefit zone where they fund the endeavor and could therefore exclusively determine who would or would not be provided that special benefit since it would be THEIR RESOURCES FUNDING THE BENEFIT!
WITH SKIN IN THE GAME LAFCO ANNEXED PROPERTY OWNERS MIGHT BE MORE FRUGAL WITH WATER
THEY WOULD THEN ACTUALLY HAVE SKIN IN THE GAME WITH THEIR OWN MONEY!
Why should the subdivision residents who do not need that more expensive groundwater blended concoction for water service pay for all those added costs?
They would then have actual SKIN IN THE GAME (instead of a subsidized special benefit water service paid for by the thousands of residential subdivision owners who do not require such a special benefit). since it would be their own combined resources providing the service.
Who would like to bet money, marbles or chalk if such a SPECIAL BENEFIT ZONE OF SERVICE were established – those involved property owners would also be very concerned and careful about providing services in excess of what they could afford to produce and deliver? Seriously – it’s easy to demand more and pay more WITH SOMEONE ELSE’S MONEY!
In other words, let the LAFOC ANNEXATION PROPERTY OWNERS control and manage their own LAFCO ANNEXATION volume of water service? They want a new residential subdivision? Let them drill the 1/2 million dollar wells to provide the water. And then the replacement well when the original fails. Let them explain to others wanting water why it is cost prohibitive.
Some might say such a SPECIAL BENEFIT ZONE might not work for one reason or another – but why?
Because LAFCO ANNEXATION PROPERTY OWNERS don’t want to pay their fair share for what they consume!
So is it better to continue this absolute sham of legitimacy while ACTIVELY CONCEALING PERTINENT FACTS FROM NOT ONLY THE CUSTOMERS PAYING THE BILLS, but from the governmental entities providing the grant money for the groundwater wells being used for other political purposes? (Covering up LAFCOs INTENTIONAL VIOLATION OF STATE WATER LAW FOR DECADES?
Is that why the LDPCSD continues to provide INCORRECT SERVICE BOUNDARY INFORMATION ON ITS WEBSITE TO OTHER GOVERNMENT ENTITIES IN ORDER TO GATHER MORE GRANT FUNDS THAT ARE ONLY DELAYING THE INEVITABLE COLLAPSE OF THIS ENORMOUS FOOTHILL WATER EMPIRE SCAM PAID FOR BY THE MR WECS of the subdivision?
MERCED RIVER WATER ENTITLED CUSTOMERS = MR WECs!
My best to you and yours, Lew
PS: Notice the similar pattern at the uncontrolled southern border which is only going to cost all legal citizens of this country billions more in added costs with escalating and expanding social difficulties? So sad, for all involved. Later
