So the great power masters of the San Lorenzo Valley Water District have declared "the existence of a water shortage emergency in the San Lorenzo Valley."
These are the same geniuses that are able to determine what everyone’s individual daily usage should amount to.
They have also determined that "under current conditions they may not be able to satisfy all the demands."
I have one question for them. If that is the case why are they currently building a pipeline to another community to provide them with a water supply? Simple question.
A simple and reasonable answer would be nice. Don't just give me "love thy neighbor" crap.
The City of Santa Cruz owns Loch Lomond reservoir and could have provided a much shorter pipeline and much more water.
Scotts Valley has determined it has no need for water restrictions. Why didn't they provide a pipeline to Lompico? I believe that SLV Water District owes its longtime financial supporters an answer.
