AB 2572-THE SMOKING GUN DRIVING WATER METER INSTALLATION

You can read the entire bill SMOKING GUN-WATER METERS  

AB 2572 provided the background for our water meter dillema.

Once again, we are being blackmailed by the state through this legislation, and the last paragraph, we believe, is the driving force for the meeting to be held on November 3, 2009, and the "hasty" attempt at approval.

In part, that legislation says, in Sec8, Section 529.5 adds the following edict:
On or after January 1, 2010, any urban water supplier that applies for financial assistance from the state for a wastewater treatment project, a water use eficiency project, or a drinking water treatment project, or for a permit for a new or expanded water supply, shall demonstrate that the applicant meets the requirements of
this article.

By the way, Assemblymember Christine Kehoe. 76th Assembly District (D - San Diego) ... introduced and pushed this bill, perhaps laying the groundwork for yet another assault on Northern California water supply.

Could it be we in Woodland are facing a huge NEW water treatment facility in the near future?

O.K. Greenwaste fees are going up, water rate are going up with the installation of meters, a new water treatment facility will be proposed and last but certainly not least, you can expect a fee increase proposal on Storm Drains, now called "Storm Sewers", which is another inportant image change for specific reasons, which the By Hell Chronicles will report on in the near future.
