The Cost of Not Delivering Water

The United States Court of Federal Claims - where you go if you have a monetary claim against the federal government - is now the site of a $500 million claim for 37.5 million gallons of undelivered water over the past ten years.

And I thought I didn't drink enough water.

Another equally little-known governmental agency, the Bureau of Reclamation, is the target of the suit. The Stockton East Water District spent $65 million to build tunnels and aqueducts to carry water it rarely receives. The other Plaintiff, the Central San Joaquin Water Conservation District, together with the SEWD, service more than 320,000 residents and 130,000 acres of San Joaquin County farmland.

This will be an interesting case to watch. More to follow.
