DAILY NEWS HEADLINE: WATER WELLS THREATENED -- DWP WANTS ACTION AS CHEMICALS CREEP INTO RESERVOIR

Kerry Kavanaugh scores a HUGE Sunday front page story in ZD's book with her story on how Los Angeles has big problems if they think they can "Manhattanize" Los Angeles with unlimited, new high-density housing projects -- because as u can see, an unlimited water supply is NOT a given.

Maybe Clinton's Villaraigosa needs to take some of that pension money he wants to invest into speculative alternative engery technology and invest it into making "synthetic water" for all high-density, "building UP" projects.)

Water wells threatened -- DWP wants action as chemicals creep into reservoir

More than four years after being warned that a creeping chemical plume was threatening Los Angeles' water supply, the DWP has shut down at least one drinking-water well because of contamination of the San Fernando Valley aquifer.

The North Hollywood well closure means that, for the first time, Los Angeles will be unable to draw its full allotment of groundwater, forcing it to import water at a cost of $7.3 million.

But more troubling than the cost, Department of Water and Power officials say, is the possibility that the contamination will spread and ruin Los Angeles' only local water supply - the gigantic San Fernando Valley underground reservoir that can serve residents in an emergency.

TA DA, *******! READ IT AND WEEP CITY HALL...WE NEED THE WATER!
Daily News WATER SUPPLY ALERT

Zuma Dogg and Daily News...like Snoop and Dre! ZD hears the 411 from the pueblos, and blasts it on a predictive, speculative basis -- then people without A.D.D. (like Daily News reporters) back it up with "the realest, dough!"

So, thank goodness for perfect timing with this vindicating story: Cause last week, in response to Ed Reyes and the City of Los Angeles' LA River (aka: Condorodo River, because of the high density housing projects that they don't really mention when address the project publicly), I was asking how they are going to provide water to all these housing projects when the water supply is not a constant? And it kinda feels like you are going into "Art Bell conspiracy territory" when you speculate on environmental concerns.

As you know, the City of Los Angeles is on a mission to create massive amounts of high density housing to accomodate all the new residents migrating to this international jewel of the region.

But some folks have recently brought it to my attention that the issue of providing water to all these new homes is a serious issue to be considered, which Villaraigosa and City Council ARE NOT considering. Because they take an "analytical" approach to planning, not "holistic".

In other words, they just approve project after project; evaluating the project's impact, as if it's the only 40 story condo going up in town -- failing to consider the other 40 story condos being built right next to it.

AND -- AS DAILY NEWS HAS NOW BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION -- YOU CAN'T BASE YOUR WHOLE FUTURE ON THE FAULTY PREMISE THAT YOU CAN GENERATE AN ENDLESS SUPPLY OF WATER, LIKE IT'S A NUCLEAR GENERATOR.

That is why the City Charter has made the proper provisions to make sure we don't end up in these messes. BUT, the City ignores the Charter and Planning recommendations and other laws -- day after day, week after week -- and now you can add "risky water supply" to homeless, gridlock traffic and LAUSD crisis to your list of things that came back and bit you in the butt, because you ignore things too long -- AND YOU KNEW THIS IS A PROBLEM!
