Stop an Unfair Rate Hike - Central Basin #1
Food & Water Watch - California – Central Basin Water Agency provides water to a large part of South East LA, and will cast a deciding vote on massive new water project that would increase YOUR water bill and taxes. Come join us to rally and give public comment at their monthly Board of Directors meeting - protect low income communities who would be hit the hardest with the tunnel rate hike. WHAT: Urge Central Basin Water Agency to Vote No On Rate Hike for Tunnels WHERE: 6252 Telegraph Rd, Commerce, CA 90040 (free parking) *meet us outside building prior to meeting* WHEN: Monday, July 24th, 9:00am If you can't make it, we will post an action for you to email your board members shortly! _________ more details: The powerful Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) is working with Governor Brown to push a multibillion dollar delta tunnels project that will bring no water or benefit to our communities, but will increase YOUR water bill. One of your local water agencies, the Central Basin Municipal Water District, sits on the board of MWD and will be voting on whether you will get hit with this rate hike so that they could fund this controversial plan. The Delta Tunnels project, which was proposed by Governor Brown, would involve building massive 35-mile long, 40-foot wide twin tunnels to divert the Sacramento River, 350 miles north of Los Angeles. Water from this project would go primarily to large agribusinesses in the Central Valley, while southern California will get stuck with the bill. This project is estimated to cost around $17 to $67 billion! Fortunately, Central Basin Water Agency CAN help stop this unfair tax hike by voting no at Metropolitan Water District, and urging their board to oppose the Delta Tunnels. Instead of throwing money into these tunnels, Central Basin Water Agency needs to: Expand water recycling and provide incentives so ratepayers can have affordable water rates. Here is what is really behind these tunnels: Big Agriculture interests take 70% of the water from the Delta in average years, and they want to take more. Sending ratepayer money to finance the tunnels would worsen the affordability crisis in our communities and divert $$ from real water solutions.

Stop the Corporate Water Grab! No Rate Hike!
Food & Water Watch - California – One of the biggest water projects in CA history will soon be coming up for a vote in Los Angeles - it will increase YOUR water bills and taxes to benefit giant agribusinesses and Goldman Sachs. Join Food & Water Watch and our allies at this upcoming public workshop to stop the unfair rate hike and stop CA water privatization! Your Mayor, City Council, or Water Agency will be voting on whether YOU will get hit with this rate hike so that they can fund this controversial plan. WHAT: Urge Mayor Garcetti and other SCal City Council leaders to oppose tunnels at Metropolitan Water District (MWD) Board Meeting, rally and public comment! WHEN: Tuesday, July 25th 9:00 am - Gather, get the real water facts 10:00 am Meeting begins promptly with public comment WHERE: Metropolitan Water District (right at Union Station) **Meet outside in courtyard near fountain at 9am** 700 North Alameda Street Los Angeles, CA 90012-2944 We encourage you to take Metro to Union Station. MWD is on the same property. There is paid parking on site. If you are intersted in carpooling - send a message to Brenna. Questions? Email Brenna at bnorton(at)fwwatch(dot)org ________ MORE INFO: The Metropolitan Water District (MWD) will soon vote on whether they should be able to raise YOUR bills to fund new water tunnels that will bring no water or benefit to our communites. This project is a corporate giveaway known as the "water tunnels" or the "California Water Fix." It is estimated to cost from $17 to $67 billion and independent studies estimate this could cost the average Angeleno household from $200 to over $393 annually! Governor Brown is pushing to build these massive twin water tunnels that would divert the Sacramento River and send water primarily to large agribusinesses in the Central Valley. Meanwhile Southern California would get stuck with the bill and wouldn't get the water. This comes as L.A.’s water system continues to deteriorate. Los Angeles has struggled for decades to fund real, 21st-century water solutions, but we know that instead of throwing money into these tunnels we need to: Invest in stormwater capture and recycling, clean up local polluted ground water, and fix the aging pipes and water infrastructure beneath the city. What is really behind these tunnels? Big Agriculture wants more water, and wants you to pay the bill.
