Water District About-Face Upsets Allies

“We are ... incredulous that you could now have on your agenda a resolution to rescind the hard-won advances that you achieved by passing Resolution 2004-3 with such strong community support last year,” wrote Jack Bohlka of the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter.
    Bohlka’s letter criticized the board for embracing a water study that factors in water from wells shut down because of contamination.
