Water Authority Leadership Starts Dialogue on MWD Issues
The San Diego County Water Authority has been raising questions for years about questionable overcharging and overspending practices at the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California – decisions that often occur with little board discussion or public oversight.
Drawing on their experience as elected officials, the Water Authority’s Board officers have concluded that many public officials in Southern California don’t know what is going on at MWD or how MWD’s decisions impact rates and property taxes.
To shine a light on MWD’s practices and to hold them accountable, the Water Authority’s Board officers have started a regional dialogue with their counterparts across Southern California through regular letters on key issues. These letters are intended to increase transparency and foster discussions that lead to real and meaningful changes at MWD.
