Title: More State water given away!
Post by Forum Admin on Jul 13th, 2010, 2:02pm

Seems the State has sold given away more water to a private party and is accused of violating the State Constitution is doing so. Is anyone surprised?

July 2, 2010:
"A coalition of farmers, sportfishing interests and
environmentalists filed suit today seeking to have the Kern Water Bank returned to state
control. The water bank, a massive underground reservoir in Kern County built by the
state’s Department of Water Resources, was illegally gifted to powerful corporate
agribusiness interests and real-estate speculators as part of the controversial “Monterey
Plus Amendments” to the State Water Project system.  ...... "

Here's the whole press release:

From what I've heard, there are some interesting names that come up when you look into who is involved in owning/controling this water. Names like Fieinstein and Pelosi seem to have ties to profit from this sale. We've learned from California's history that owning water is better than gold.

NO....most of us wacko watchers have been jumping up and down about for the past few years. The sick thing is the same sort of cartel has been emulated in Nevada by Reid who is setting up a grab for northern Nevada water for Las Vegas which will be SOL when Mead goes below minimum pool  in a few years.

Please everyone read this link.....and then think about who you are going to vote for Senator in the fall.  This is sick and suspect as it gets.
