And just how much will this impact the water rates?, We conserve, we lose! I don't believe I have ever had the need to visit their website.

Water is FREE, it is the delivery of the water to your TAP that costs money. Most of that is done with pumps to maintain water preasure and Electric Rates have gone up 400% at PG&E since the Republican lead deregulation of electric rates and Enron. Conservation of water is the California State Mandate. We need to share water between the Agriculture we need for our food, the manufaturing that creats our jobs and our California residential lifestyle. If we do not waste it, there will be plenty of it to go around, even durring low rainfall periods. The sources of California water a finite unless you tap the oceans and that source is very expensive to convert to fresh , usable water. Fresh, Clean, pure drinkable watter at the tap is available to only 5% of the people on our planet. There are even places in America where you can not drink the "Tap Water". Be gratefull for our first quality utility infrastructure and please don't say "if we conserve, we lose". Conservation is nessasary to take us through the 21st Century so everyone gets to enjoy the California Lifestyle.

Aren't you happy to live in the good old USA Edward? Your comments are noteworthy and of course we should conserve our water. It is interesting that our PG&E rates are among the hightest in the whole country! Isn't part of that high cost supposed to "save" the environment? Right! Just to be really safe, we should probably build a few more dams as well. Better to have too much water than not enough, but I'll guess there will be too many Lib-Dems who will vote against anything to help humans, but fully support anything that supports animals, and keeping humans in one spot (Agenda 21). Also, there are water issues, such as the Central Valley not getting what they need to raise crops...all because of a fish (or the like) which may not be "local." Another issue, is sending water to the Southern California so they can water their lawns and enjoy all those swimming pools. The Colorado River water and the Owens Valley Water Project will be very questionable in the near future, if not already. The call was for input for the ALCOWD web site and I'd say it needs a general overhall. Any web site should be "fall off the log" easy to use and I am not sure this one really is. The best way to test it is to get someone who knows little about web sites and see if they can get their information/question answered. If they can, it is probably a good site, if not, then back to the drawing boards.
