#1Question for city Council reply in city newspaper for everyone to see.

Someone talking too much, Carlsbad fresh water levels dropping fast, if that's the case where are all those white water trucks full of fresh water from city water supply passing through town going, they're pumping it down into oil wells that's where it's going.
That's why they're putting voluntary water restrictions here in Carlsbad pretty soon they will be mandatory restrictions.
Another question since this is city water who is paying for it, and where is that money going?
Is this money lining somebody's pockets?

Wake up Carlsbad I think were being screwed.
#2There are multiple sources of water wells in the city limits and county where the water is not suitable for drinking and bathing purposes. These wells are designated non-potable and are used in both the Potash and oil field sectors. The water wells in the La Huerta area that were sold to the potash mines in the 1960s are one such example. The water from one very specific underground zone that is located near the airport is another example. The water is deemed "freshwater" but it actually isn't safe for human consumption. Therefore water from those wells are sold commercially to the oil field.
There are some people who have water right that have potable water but choose to sell to whomever. That's their business whether is suits you or not. The City and county can't deny these people their livelihood.
Should all the non-potable water for commercial use be eliminated, there would be no reason to live here as there would be too few jobs to make a city. Furthermore, the well owned by the potash mines are owned by them. Private use can't be regulated by the city or county.
#3It is really easy for someone in office to say this water is not safe for human use, when it really is safe for human use, and then turn around and sell this water and line their pockets with it, this is what has been going on for a very long time now.
The old saying loose lips sink ships, someone got a little too drunk the other night and talk way too much.
Maybe Channel 13 Larry Barker can look into this.
#4Sure Larry Barker will look into it. Nearly 8 years after it is an issue and his looking into it has no meaning.

Would like for you to look into the many businesses throughout the state, county, city that don't pay taxes dealing in only cash, I would like to see accountability. I see where these businesses pocket as much they can. We the public do not benefit. Why are they not held accountable.
