It is amazing to me how virtually all of the very few major supporters of the proposed Montebello Hills condo project have come under investigation by Law Enforcement or a cloud of disrepute by voters.
Start with Bob Bagwell, Norma Lopez-Reid, Rosie Vasquez, Robert Urteaga, Tom Calderon and the Central Basin Water District. More recently, there has been Dr. Frank Gomez and Jack Hadjinian, both of which have indicated support for moving this proposed project along.
Dr. Frank has stated that he is not running for reelection because of personal reasons, and Jack Hadjinian has been peripherally been involved with the Noguez investigation, along with having been endorsed and funded by a group headed by Noguez and Sheriff Lee Baca, both of whom are under scrutiny for alleged misdeeds.
What is it about the proposed Montebello Hills project? Is it so tainted that only corrupt or questionable characters are drawn to it?
Are its dangers, both fiscal to the city and physical to its residents, so repellent to decent people that only those who know nothing about it or choose to ignore its dangers support it?
That's for you to decide.
This story is about a company that apparently has the average ethical standard for major supporters of the proposed Hillside Condo Project.

Water levels in the
San Gabriel Basin behind the dam are also at or near historic lows. The natural artesian springs are gone, ponds are dry.
The pollution plume is on the move.
All due to overpumping.
Reclaimed water from the San Jose Creek treatment plant may help raise the level.
Higher costs coming for Montebello water.
Thanks San Gabriel valley water company and other overpumpers-Whittier, Monterey Park, all of you with wells in the aquifer.

SGVH20's endorsed plan for water for the condo project including firefighting water and fire sprinkler water, tanks, pumps, source and distribution is totally inadequate.

The unwise proposed Montebello Hills condo project calls for cutting up to 100 feet of the highest hills and reducing the elevation of other hills by varying amounts. We wouldn't even have hills, we'd have a Mesa or plateau. The amount of dirt moved would be six million cubic yards. This dirt would have to be watered down every three hours to maintain a dirt humidity ratio of 18% in order to try to prevent dust from blowing every which way. And all of this would go on while we're in an era of droughts and water shortages.

The San Gabriel Valley Water Company (SGVWC )is the firm that would provide water to the proposed Montebello Hills condo project. SGVWC previously provided the City of Montebello a water availability report that claimed there was lots of water available, first from their wells, then from Central Basin Water District, then from the MWD. After making these claims the SGVWC proceeded to ask the PUC for permission to raise residents' water rates because of anticipated water shortages.

The Link was not racist, just a comment on the story on the link could be considered racist.

Whats going on is that this may finally explain how the Crooked Hill expects people to pay more than $700000 for a little condo!!
CH is a wholly owned subsidiary of Cane River Development of Louisiana which was a wholly owned subsidiary of PXP. They drank the water and their brains were eaten!!!!!!!
Thats the ONLY explanation for their plan!!!!!!!!!

BTW Look to the Calderon connection for the reason why the San Gab Water co was so hot on the condo project. Now that the Caldedron connection may be broken, wait a ffew months and ask them again if they will be able to get all the water probmised!!!!
What price will the SGWC ask for such watr???? A LOT!!!!!
