MWD’s spending on public relations and plane fares questioned by investigative news team

An investigative news team from KGTV-Channel 10  recently examined how the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California spent ratepayer money over a five month period.  The expenditures include the hiring of a $150,000- salaried PR person in San Diego and nearly $25,000 for airfare for out-of-state executives to fly to meetings.  The spending occurred as MWD justified raising rates for the sixth consecutive year for infrastructure improvements and water treatment.
