Sewerville, Take a Deep Breath
Whilst wating for the Dec 1, 1 pm. Regional Water Quality Control Board Meeting at 895 Aerovista Place, Rm #101 (?) (which will go over unti 8:30 the next morning, if necessary) , said meeting to decide whether to shoot Los Osos and all our hound dawgs, anyone interested should go read the(item No. 19) Staff Report for Regular meeting of July 9, 2004, Prepared on June 18, 2004, State of California California Regional Water Quality control Board Central Coast Region [a pdf file] which, hopefully can be found at www.swrcb.ca.gov/rwqcb3/BoardAgendas/070904/ There's an interesting "staff response" on page 10 to Rebecca McFarland's question, which states ". . . moving the project to the Andre site is not a feasible option." If that's that level of information given to the Board(s) by the "Staff," then it's no wonder that the Board(s) often end up making bad decisions.
Then, of course, go to the Los Osos CSD website and read the CSD's prepared response for the upcoming hearing. And, if it's not posted yet, do stop by the CSD office to get a copy of Rob Miller's price comparisons for the in-town, out of town plant siting that was discussed in the State negotiations that weren't negotiations and ask yourself, "What's with the page 10 staff reply mentioned above? Not feasible? Huh?"
Then take a deep breath and start placing bets on the number and kinds of "mis-information" that will be or already has been placed before the poor RWQC BOARD MEMBERS and cease wonding why GIGO still has such a powerful effect on all our lives.
Then hide the dawg.
