The article tells of a possible water-rate increase of $20 a year because the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power had to expand its remediation of the Owens River. Now we find that the DWP is suing the Mammoth Community Water District because it uses 1% of the water the DWP is entitled to because it owns the water in Mammoth Creek.
Really, I'm going to be almost ashamed to be a tourist from L.A. on my holiday in Mammoth Lakes this year. At least I will be helping the struggling economy.
I'll give my 1% and $20 if the DWP will lay off the Owens River so I can go to the Eastern Sierra and fish, hike and marvel at the grandeur of the "Range of Light" guilt-free — almost.
