It's a little-noticed agency, a mere asterisk on the election ballot. The Newhall County Water District is so quiet, it hasn't even held an election in a decade because incumbents have run unopposed. In November, however, three challengers have surfaced, charging that the five-member board has been complacent in running the district, which supplies water to 16,000 people, the majority of whom live in Santa Clarita.

The City Council has moved to consolidate water service by asking for a merger of the Pico Water District and the city's Water Department. In the merger application to the Local Agency Formation Commission, the city said the action would improve water service, end duplication of water mains in some areas and increase domestic water pressure.

Only 124 registered voters live in the West Valley County Water District, but 11 of them are running for election Tuesday to the district's five-member board of directors. Despite the preponderance of candidates, some residents--including some incumbents--can't understand why anyone would want to govern the three-square-mile water district serving Neenach, a town in the far western corner of the Antelope Valley.

Thick clouds veiled the peaks of the San Gabriel Mountains. Not far away, just south of East Riverside Drive in Ontario, water gushed into an earthen basin the size of 10 football fields. It had washed up there from the rain-filled gutters of East Merion Drive, Doral Court and South Grove Avenue. Most parts of Southern California would have shunted the storm runoff to the sea as fast as they could.
