California American Water company officials sit in A dark, underground room, smoking CIGARS and sipping Cristal, laughing about their plot to DOUBLE LOCAL WATER RATES as soon as the state approves the hike! And TRIPLE THEM in five years!
“Mwahahahaha!. We’re RICH! And we’re going to get even richer off those Monterey Peninsula PEOPLE, who already pay SOME OF the HIGHEST WATER RATES in California!”
Cal Am’S German OWNER, RWE, makes $2.6 BILLION IN PROFITS
EVERY YEAR! RWE is the BIGGEST water system owner in the US,
AND the 78th largest company, OF ANY KIND, IN THE WORLD! it
loves to GOUGE customers!
Cal Am ratepayers are fed up. They’re mad as hell about LEAKY PIPES, old pumps, and a SILTED-UP San Clemente dam. Who will pay for these repairs? Why, the ratepayers, of course!
Cal Am stockholders rake in the Benjamins. And little old ladies buy CAT FOOD for dinner so they can afford to pay their water bills!
Still, local customers continue to conserve water, cutting usage on the Peninsula by more than 20 percent. Many residents (gasp!) have to share a SINGLE BATHROOM at home, because there isn’t enough water to add a SECOND TOILET! EEEWWW!!!
