County Supervisors Warn about Flawed Business Practices at MWD

Two San Diego County Supervisors have issued an alert to their colleagues in five other Southern California counties warning that the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California has overcharged residents by hundreds of millions of dollars.

“Although MWD is a public agency, little attention has been paid to its flawed business practices and uncontrolled spending that have contributed to significant water rate increases in recent years,” said Dianne Jacob, chairwoman of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, and Kristin Gaspar, vice chairwoman of the board. “Water bills will continue to be higher than necessary in our communities until MWD’s out-of-control spending can be stopped.”
