Having just received a political flyer from Sang Korman, I feel it necessary to address an issue he speaks to. Korman states that his Republican opponent, Rep. Elton Gallegly, is a "Goose Egg Congressman who has delivered nothing for hometown projects." This is false. I have personally seen Congressman Gallegly give testimony on several occasions on behalf of United Water Conservation District to receive funding for the Freeman diversion project. With assistance from our fellow Ventura County representative, Rep. Bob Lagomarsino, United Water has received a loan for over $18 million.

The United Water Conservation District has purchased the former Security Pacific Bank building in Santa Paula and plans to relocate its headquarters there at the beginning of next year. United recently purchased the 24,100-square-foot site at 737 E. Main St. for $350,000 after the merger between Security Pacific and Bank of America resulted in closure of the bank branch, a real estate official said. "We've been looking for three years for a new facility," United General Manager Frederick J.

The United Water Conservation District is expected to decide today to help fund a study of how to pipe state water into northern Ventura County. Although the city of Ventura and the Casitas Municipal Water District already agreed to proceed with a $320,700 environmental analysis on piping their allotments of state water from the California Aqueduct, United said it would wait until cities it serves showed an interest, District General Manager Fred Gientke said in December.

Local water officials this week took steps to flush dangerous nitrates from aquifers near Oxnard in an attempt to bring drinkable water to 200 rural residents who have been forced to rely on bottled water. But officials predicted that contamination could spread from the El Rio neighborhood to wells to the north and east if drought conditions persist, boosting the concentration of nitrates there. Nitrates have been linked to "blue baby syndrome," a fatal illness that deprives infants of oxygen.

Civic leaders and engineers who sent earthmovers lurching into action 40 years ago to build Santa Felicia Dam and create Lake Piru celebrated the last payment Tuesday on the $10.9-million loan to build the imposing structure. The dam, which blocked the flow of Piru Creek and captured water to replenish underground basins in the Santa Clara River Valley and the Oxnard Plain, has stored more than 1 million acre-feet of water since its completion in 1955.

The tent may help keep the bugs at bay. The air mattress may provide much needed padding for your knees and hip bones. And a pillow may help align your neck properly for a good night's sleep. But if you plan on schlepping a van full of folding chairs, two-burner stoves, bikes, coolers, canoes, lanterns and oversized dome tents to a Ventura County campground for Labor Day weekend, there is one small gadget that you probably have overlooked: a pair of earplugs. That's right.

Re "Water District Salaries," Ventura County letters, Feb. 28. I am amazed by the salary raises granted by the United Water Conservation District board. In last year's election, Neal Andrews tried to tell us about the irresponsibility of this board. We take comfort from the fact that he is still watching these rascals for us.
