I have watched in dismay as my water bills have climbed over the years, even as I redouble my conservation efforts every year.
The city of Vallejo has, through a series of cynical decisions over several decades, squandered the abundance of three lakes and a viable water system, leaving us with a set of leaky pipes and unused resources. The history of this saga is complex and daunting, but the result is straightforward; the city of Vallejo is treating a small group of citizens with considerable disrespect and is holding our water, our most important resource, hostage to their belief that such a small group of people could be ignored.
Their assumption has left us with no choice but to take our concerns to the courts.
I encourage anyone with a healthy cynicism for a government’s disregard of its citizenry to watch this saga unfold and offer support and encouragement to this small group as it takes on Goliath in service of our most important resource; water.
