15 billion gallons of rain have fallen on the City of San Diego
so far this winter. About 90% of it, enough to meet all
household needs for half of the next year, would have been
diverted to reservoirs if our public servants were not fiocused
on perpetuating their entrenched bureaucracy by defying State
law that ordeers them to prevent the loss or waste of this most
critical natural resource.(The CA Water Code instructs them
to guide "ALL OR ANY STORMWATERS" into the soil of their
district to prevent its loss or contamination.)

Other cities guide all stormwater to storage so they have no
floodis to 'control, no water shortages, no enormous costs for
importing water and no polluted runoff that has to be treated.
Obviously, they also have no great amount of their property tax
dollars supporting senior public servants who are creating work
for themselves by not doing their jobs properly.

Our public works departments have contrived an articial water
shortage to panic politicians into approving foolish plans.

59 small dams were built in canyons around Mira Meas in the 100
years after '49ers arrived to mine SD County's gold. Smart landowners
did this to keep their wells full from the plentiful winter rainfall.

But when land developers arrived to exploit public demand for homes
they fooled and bribed politicians into appointing public works agency
managers who could be corrupted so that these abused their powers
to fool honest politicians into apporoving absurd policies and practices.

As a result these engineers allowed destruction of the dams, in
defiance of State Law, so that land developer cronies could fill the
reservoirs and build tract homes for windfall profit.
The newly developed land lost 93% of rainfallk, creating a chronic
water shortage that has been exploited by these engineers to enrich
themselves and cronies in land/water/construction businesses.

In summary: Criminal managers,- bureaucrats - fooled the public and
honest politicians into adopting ridiculous policies and practices that
created problems these criminals solved at very high cost. This is now costing homeowners more than $6,000 yearly in combined local/state tax-utility-bond debt payments yearly for unneeded programs.

All because most folks let themselve be persuaded by teachers and
reporters that they are not smart enough to understand how rainfall
could and should be managed by competent, honest engineers.

We voters arfe our own worst enegy when it comes to choosing fools
to manage rainwater, the most important element of our environment.
