An offbeat campaign for an obscure Calabasas water board seat ended the way it started: with charges flying and confusion everywhere. Fresh accusations of malfeasance were leveled as candidates for the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District's Division 2 seat attacked each other--and then took swipes at the audience in the last public forum before the election. By the time the forum concluded, incumbent Director Tad Mattock and challenger Glen Peterson--not the audience--were asking the questions.

Water users in Calleguas Municipal Water District who install ultra-low-flow toilets will receive a $100 rebate check this fall if the district's board of directors adopts a conservation program tonight, officials said. The Ultra Low-Flow Toilet Rebate Program will replace 5,000 toilets with new units that use about a gallon-and-a-half per flush, district spokesman Eric Bergh said. Officials hope that the program will save enough water to supply 400 families for a year.

Gov. Gray Davis has appointed two new members to the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board, creating a quorum for the first time since last autumn. Although the delay hasn't stalled any development or environmental projects so far, the appointments announced Tuesday came after the board canceled its meeting this Friday for lack of a quorum.

Meeting last week, the board of directors for the Fountain Valley-based Orange County Water District approved the first phase of a project to minimize the spread of chlorinated hydrocarbons seeping into the ground-water basin in Fullerton and Anaheim. The hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds, have been released into the ground water over the past 30 years from industrial areas in Anaheim, Fullerton and Placentia. The board approved $2.

State water regulators put off a decision Tuesday on a sharply contested proposal to protect fish and wildlife in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, voting instead to retreat behind closed doors to search for a compromise in private. The delay appeared to reflect a lack of consensus among the top water officials about the sweeping delta protections, which would require deep reductions in water shipments to farms and cities in Southern and Central California and impose new fees.

The state's water pollution watchdog needs to get tougher with companies and government agencies that discharge waste into San Diego County waterways, according to a review of the performance of the Regional Water Quality Control Board. The report released Wednesday by the state auditor general said the San Diego board's self-described "cooperative approach" has stymied effective monitoring and enforcement of state and federal clean-water laws.

Marin County suffered greatly during the last major drought, in the 1970s--slashing water use between 30% and 65% to avoid running out completely--so it's not surprising that Marin is serious about conserving in the current dry spell. Even so, the North Marin Water District is raising eyebrows with its latest attempt to lower water use: It pays customers to tear out their water-guzzling grass lawns and replace them with "xeriscapes" of drought-tolerant plants.

In a victory for a Northern California timber firm, a Humboldt County judge ruled last week that a state water panel did not have authority to impose additional regulations on the Pacific Lumber Co. At issue was whether the North Coast Water Quality Control Board was within state law when it ordered Pacific Lumber to monitor how a planned harvest of 720 acres of redwood trees would affect water quality in the Elk River.

After two years of negotiations, the Azusa Land Reclamation Co. has won approval from a regional water board to expand its dump. Despite the approval by the Los Angeles Regional Water Control Board, San Gabriel Valley water officials complained that the expansion of the Azusa dump will lead to even more polluted water for the San Gabriel Valley, where contamination has been detected in about 88 of 400 water wells. The board voted 4 to 3 to approve the Azusa Land Reclamation Co.'
