Water Theft Is Now Shockingly Common in California

Joshua Krause
The Daily Sheeple

June 8th, 2015


Despite California’s horrendous drought, water is still pretty cheap compared to say, buying bottled water at the grocery store. However, for those of us who need vast quantities of water for agricultural, industrial, and other commercial operations, those extra pennies per gallon start to add up in a big way. Thus, the latest rationing efforts by the State of California, have spawned a growing black market for water.

Just a few weeks ago a 500 gallon water truck was stolen in broad daylight as it sat idling along the freeway in Oakland. The tanker was being used to hose down dust particles from a nearby construction project, when someone simply drove away with it, never to be seen again.

But what makes this case so interesting, is that the thief may not have been after the water inside the vehicle. Prices may be going up, but the value of 500 gallons is hardly worth the risk of being sent to jail for grand theft auto. In reality, the perp was likely after the vehicle itself for its ability to store large quantities of water. Such a crime suggests that water is becoming a hot commodity on the black market.

Still, dramatic capers like that are rare. The majority of water thefts are often perpetrated by ordinary citizens. The Daily Beast recently interviewed an employee with the East Bay Municipal Utility District, who noted:

    “The drought is driving the price of water up and you’re starting to see people who are desperate for it willing to get it any way they can,” he said. He rattled off instances ranging from ripping off vacationing families to some going for broke and skimming from the local water source. “We’ve had situations in the past where people have stolen from their neighbor’s houses when they’re gone to some folks who didn’t want to pay for the water and dug under the street and tapped into the main line.”

Another case from Sacramento involved a rental truck manned by an unlicensed driver. He was stopped by the police as he attempted to siphon off water from a fire hydrant.

    Cops immediately impounded the vehicle, which had already been pumped more than three-quarters filled with pirated water before city officials swooped in. “You have to have a permit to open up a hydrant and utilize the water,” Rhea Serran, a spokeswoman for the state capital city’s public utilities department, said. “It’s under investigation but we are still determining how much water may have been taken.”

So long as the drought continues to wreak havoc on the Western US, we can expect crimes like this to become commonplace. What’s so disturbing about these thefts though, is that you would expect to see them occur in a third world country or a post apocalyptic movie, not in bustling high-tech states like California.

But at the end of the day, water is the one resource none of us can go without. So it goes without saying that it doesn’t matter how wealthy or advanced our society may be. As soon as the water is tapped out, we’ll be on the path towards a third world status, and we can expect to see all the petty crimes that are associated with such a condition.

snip -

The curtailment order, issued Friday by the State Water Resources Control Board, has been expected for weeks. Earlier this spring, the board halted diversions under some 8,700 junior rights. With snowmelt reduced to a trickle this year, there simply isn't enough water flowing in rivers to meet the demand of all those with even older rights predating 1914.

And as flows continue to decline this summer, board officials said, they expect to issue more curtailments, stopping river pumping by more senior diverters.


The effect of the curtailments, which affect water users with rights dating to 1903, will vary. Many have water in storage that they can continue to use.


This is so wrong in so many ways, don't they know this will seriously
effect producing food?  Or maybe that's what they want, crop losses,
food shortages, sky-rocketing prices, manipulate the weather so the
rain clouds don't fall over drought stricken areas and then TPTB to the
rescue...take over everything.

Bay Area nudist resort accused of stealing 280,000 gallons of water

A nudist resort in Los Gatos struggling to stay afloat during California's drought has been accused of stealing more than 280,000 gallons of water from a local creek, which authorities say sustains area wildlife.

Authorities from the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District said the clothing-optional Lupin Lodge has been warned in the past about its efforts to divert water from 117-acre Hendrys Creek to maintain its residential properties, spa/resort, camping facility and restaurant.

The lodge was allegedly stealing about 6,000 gallons of creek water per day for more than seven weeks, Assistant General Manager Kevin Woodhouse said.

But Lupin Lodge owners say they have a historic right to the water, which they said they have used since a drought in the 1970s and maintain to support fire suppression efforts.

District officials said the lodge has not such historic rights.

“The water source for Hendry’s Creek is a spring-fed waterfall. The water is tapering off and what water there is, is going on the ground instead of used for people and fire suppression,” Lodge owner Lori Kay Stout said.


After several actions, notices and talks between the two sides,  district officials went to the resort and removed thousands of feet of irrigation line they said had been installed to divert creek water.

The district plans to heighten patrols of the property to ensure lodge workers don’t attempt to steal water again, Woodhouse said

Water from the creek feeds the Los Gatos Creek, recharges groundwater, travels to the Guadalupe River Watershed, which provides drinking water to the Silicon Valley, and then connects to San Francisco Bay.

Established in 1935, the lodge, which can house as many as 65 residents, began to feel the effects of the drought this summer, Stout said.

Lodge owners have been trucking in water to support the property’s wells and asked visitors to bring three gallons of water with them during their stay.

"We haven't had this happen since the 1970s drought," she said.

Relying on wells and a massive pool for water, the lodge streamlined its restaurant menu, let lawns go brown and advised guests to take short, quick showers, Stout said.

  Since they are nudists, I would also recommend that they take group showers to curb water use.

  As Hitlery would say,  WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

  AND THAT IS THE NAKED TRUTH.

Rich Californians balk at limits: ‘We’re not all equal when it comes to water’
By Rob Kuznia June 13 2015

RANCHO SANTA FE, CALIF. — Drought or no drought, Steve Yuhas resents the idea that it is somehow shameful to be a water hog. If you can pay for it, he argues, you should get your water.

People “should not be forced to live on property with brown lawns, golf on brown courses or apologize for wanting their gardens to be beautiful,” Yuhas fumed recently on social media. “We pay significant property taxes based on where we live,” he added in an interview. “And, no, we’re not all equal when it comes to water.”

Yuhas lives in the ultra-wealthy enclave of Rancho Santa Fe, a bucolic Southern California hamlet of ranches, gated communities and country clubs that guzzles five times more water per capita than the statewide average. In April, after Gov. Jerry Brown (D) called for a 25 percent reduction in water use, consumption in Rancho Santa Fe went up by 9 percent.
...
But a moment of truth is at hand for Yuhas and his neighbors, and all of California will be watching: On July 1, for the first time in its 92-year history, Rancho Santa Fe will be subject to water rationing.
...
So far, the community’s 3,100 residents have not felt the wrath of the water police. Authorities have issued only three citations for violations of a first round of rather mild water restrictions announced last fall. In a place where the median income is $189,000, where PGA legend Phil Mickelson once requested a separate water meter for his chipping greens, where financier Ralph Whitworth last month paid the Rolling Stones $2 million to play at a local bar, the fine, at $100, was less than intimidating.

All that is about to change, however. Under the new rules, each household will be assigned an essential allotment for basic indoor needs. Any additional usage — sprinklers, fountains, swimming pools — must be slashed by nearly half for the district to meet state-mandated targets
,....
Residents who exceed their allotment could see their already sky-high water bills triple. And for ultra-wealthy customers undeterred by financial penalties, the district reserves the right to install flow restrictors — quarter-size disks that make it difficult to, say, shower and do a load of laundry at the same time.

In extreme cases, the district could shut off the tap altogether.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

In past droughts the rich, elitists thought nothing of an
$1,100 a month water bill (literally that amount) and
when a few in the bay area got the "boot" as they called it
and restricted their water flow coming into their houses,
they couldn't even take a shower.   Then the "rich" in the
bay area hired water trucks to spray their 2 acre front lawns
to keep them green. 

You can bet the illegals and other welfare career leaches
(willingly stay on welfare as a career choice) in stack and pack
section 8 apartment buildings are using water like never before
since they're not on water meters.   

They stopped talking about food prices to soar , harvest season has
yet to start for many crops there but I'm expecting sky-rocketing food
prices come the tail end of this year.   I talked to a friend in Canada last
week and they said grocery prices are up 30% this time of year over last
year's prices .

Outrage as ObaMAH Golfs in Drought-stricken California Desert


US President Barack Obama played golf near the desert city of Palm Springs, California Saturday, shrugging off criticism that ambling around thirsty, lush greens was unseemly during a historic drought.

Obama is slated to play two courses at the weekend, Sunnylands and Porcupine Creek, a father's day weekend escape from Washington and from the ardors of his grinding presidential schedule.

they have been planning this since 2008 20x2020 :  Part of this plan and in law is to meter EVERY water source by 2025!!!

http://www.swrcb.ca.gov/water_issues/hot_topics/20x2020/docs/20x2020plan.pdf

http://www.swrcb.ca.gov/water_issues/hot_topics/20x2020/
20x2020 Agency Team on Water Conservation

On February 28, 2008 Governor Schwarzenegger wrote to leadership of the California State Senate, outlining key elements of a comprehensive solution to problems in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The first element on the Governor's list was “a plan to achieve a 20 percent reduction in per capita water use statewide by 2020.” In March 2008 the 20x2020 Agency Team was convened to develop a plan to achieve a 20 percent reduction in per capita urban water use statewide by 2020. The final 20x2020 Water Conservation Plan, dated February 2010, has been released.

About 20x2020

The 20x2020 Water Conservation Plan sets forth a statewide road map to maximize the state’s urban water efficiency and conservation opportunities between 2009 and 2020, and beyond. It aims to set in motion a range of activities designed to achieve the 20 percent per capita reduction in urban water demand by 2020. These activities include improving an understanding of the variation in water use across California, promoting legislative initiatives that incentivize water agencies to promote water conservation, and creating evaluation and enforcement mechanisms to assure regional and statewide goals are met. The 20x2020 Plan discusses these many activities in detail.

The draft of this plan served as a basis for legislation that was enacted in November 2009 to incorporate into law (Senate Bill X7 7) the goal to achieve a 20 percent reduction in urban per capita water use in California by 2020. Urban water suppliers are required to establish water conservation targets for the years 2015 and 2020. One of the alternative approaches specified in the law that water suppliers can use for their local targets is based on the regional targets in the April 30, 2009 draft 20x2020 Water Conservation Plan. The regional targets in the final plan are the same as in the draft.

State law requires water meters by 2025, but the State Water Resources Control Board says dozens of water districts, many in the thirsty Central Valley, aren't totally metered.
...
All new homes built since 1992 in California were required to have water meters, and in 2004, a state law called for retrofitting the rest by 2025, except those in the smallest water districts.

            Code 111, to install water meters on all municipal and 
            industrial water service connections by January 1, 2025.

          2)Requires urban water suppliers to charge customers who have 
            meters installed on the volume of deliveries, by January 1, 
            2010.

          3)Requires that, from January 1, 2010 on, an urban water 
            supplier that applies for state financial assistance for a 
            wastewater treatment project or a water-use efficiency 
            project, or for a permit for a new or expanded water supply, 
            must demonstrate that the applicant meets specified 
            requirements.

          4)Requires that, from January 1, 2015 on, an urban water 
            supplier that applies for state financial assistance for a 
            wastewater treatment project or a water-use efficiency 
            project, or for a permit for a new or expanded water supply, 
            must demonstrate that the applicant meets specified 
            requirements. 

          5)Authorizes an urban water supplier to recover the cost of 
            purchasing and installing meters from rates, fees, or charges.

            comply with this bill, regardless of any local ordinances to 
            the contrary.

          7)Gives any water purveyor that is not an urban water supplier 
            by 2005, but becomes one later, ten years to have water meters 
            installed on all service connections and five years to charge 
            customers on the volume of deliveries

http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=wat&group=00001-01000&file=525-529.7

All homes and business in California are required to have water meters by 2025, according to a law signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. But, Rogers adds, there are other types of water users in California that don’t have meters and don’t fall under that law, including farms and individual units in apartment buildings.

It aims to set in motion a range of activities designed to achieve the 20 percent per capita reduction in urban water demand by 2020.

That's insane!  Especially with their open door policy to
every illegal leaching off every entitlement system calif
has to offer including all the water they can use in their
free welfare housing where they don't pay for even water.
Good luck trying to usher this major water reduction policy,
one day everyone who can will vote with their feet and leave
which then will put even more of a financial burden onto the
state to support all the welfare leaches and illegals.

Excerpt:

As California enters its fourth year of severe drought and the state’s snowpack is at record lows, California Gov.

Jerry Brown has ordered a statewide 25% mandatory water usage reduction for residents and businesses. Significant cuts in use have been imposed on cemeteries, golf courses and facilities with large landscapes.

But the bulk of California’s water goes to its $21 billion agriculture industry, and in May, state officials accepted an offer from farmers in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta to give up 25% of their water this growing season.

California’s agricultural abundance includes more than 400 commodities. The state produces nearly half of U.S.-grown fruits, nuts and vegetables.

Across the nation, U.S. consumers regularly purchase several crops produced solely in California, according the state’s dept. of agriculture.

California’s most valued commodities in 2013 were milk, almonds, grapes, cattle, strawberries, walnuts, lettuce, hay, tomatoes and nursery plants.

In 2014, the state’s GDP was $2.3 trillion. If California were a nation, its economy would be the eighth largest in the world, according to the Calif. Dept. of Finance.

Above, residents of Porterville, Calif., who have no running water, fill buckets with non-potable water from a tank set up in front of the Doyle Colony Fire Station April 23, 2015.

Here’s who’s being hit hard by California’s drought ...

I emailed a friend a couple of days ago where I used to live
and asked her about the water situation.   Keep in mind it
was 105 degrees Fahrenheit  there today and she said they
just got their notice to cut back water usage by 25% and
all water consumption is being "monitored - watched"  and
will be fined if they do not meet the reduction of 25% but
will find out next month when she gets her water bill.   Where I
used to live is literally the bread basket of California, all the crops
are grown there, the summer heat is brutal too!

Then I asked her how much Los Angeles has to cut back on water
usage and she replied saying  " 8 percent reduction " and they waste
a lot of water there.

So...you punish the farmers, and the heat is extreme, if the walnuts get
sunburned while still on the tree, it can ruin them and if not, the walnut
meat is tiny and withered inside the shell, you grow all the crops people
eat in the central valley of california, but the over populated Los Angeles
area that produces nothing but freaks and illegals barely has to cut back
with water usage.

Yep, it's almost by design to jack up the food prices.   Got freezers??
In 2012  my intuition told me to get freezer #3 , the biggest upright,
frost free and when people tell me they don't have room for a freezer I
say nonsense!!  If it's important to you, you find a place for it and all
3 of my upright freezers are in the kitchen and LOL I have a small kitchen....
Freezer #3  paid for itself in 3 months of being able to buy on sale.  Now I
couldn't live without all 3 of my freezers.   When we see items on sale that
I can freeze, we stock up!  I call freezer #3  the "over-flow freezer"

Shop around and buy a freezer during National Holiday weekend sales,
4 day sales like 4th of july, Labor day, etc. etc.  I even got one on Veteran's
day on sale.  A freezer will save you a lot of money on groceries.

/kind lecture off nowI'm trying to give everyone a gentle nudge... LOL

  Yes, we should get another freezer and stock up on frozen food from Costco. 

  Saw some peaches at a store---$3.76 a pound.  We didn't buy them.  YIKES!

  All this HAARP and chemtrails.  I believe they are trying to divert some of the Fukushima radiation with their stupid plans.  At the same time maybe, sinisterly and knowingly, they are wiping out our food supply.  JUST A HUNCH.

With you on the freezers windy,  but do not forget the generator,or two and fuel to keep em working.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

  excerpts below...

The California Drought: All You Need to Know

Pretty much every state west of the Rockies has been facing a water shortage of one kind or another in recent years.  California's is a severe, but relatively short-term, drought. But the Colorado River basin—which provides critical water supplies for seven states including California—is the victim of a slower-burning catastrophe entering its 16th year.

Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and California all share water from the Colorado River, a hugely important water resource that sustains 40 million people in those states, supports 15 percent of the nation's food supply and fills two of largest water reserves in the country.

The severe shortages of rain and snowfall have hurt California's $46 billion agricultural industry and helped raise national awareness of the longer-term shortages that are affecting the entire Colorado River basin.

So where is all this water going?

For all of the warnings people in the West get about taking shorter showers and turning off sprinklers, the fact remains that agriculture uses the most water, by far. Farming and agriculture use more than 70 percent of the water that flows from the Colorado River to the seven river basin states.

In addition to those crops, cotton is one of the thirstiest crops a farmer can grow, especially in a desert. As it happens, many of the crops that use less water entitle farmers to fewer federal subsidies, and so farmers don't have much of an incentive to switch crops.

I don't live in California or the West, so why is this my problem?

California grows and exports a majority of the fruits and nuts eaten by the rest of the country, so water shortages there affect food supply everywhere. Calculations by the Pacific Institute indicate that, by eating food grown in California, each American indirectly uses more than 300 gallons of the state's water each week.

Almonds, which require a comparatively huge amount of water to produce, have become the most visible scapegoat for an enormous problem of which they are only one small part. One almond takes almost an entire gallon of water to produce—but so does a tiny slice of cantaloupe, four strawberries, two florets of broccoli or a fraction of an egg.

In fact, some of the biggest "water hogs," indirectly, are meat and dairy. Cows and chickens and other animals eat a lot of crops, which in turn require a lot of water. So it takes 86 gallons of water to make just 1.75 ounces of beef.

Jerry Brown says California can ‘certainly take another 10 million’ people

Each illegal alien uses gasoline and food and water and electricity ,,, much more water is used to produce that food , that gasoline , that electricity , that sewage treatment ,,,  the computers,  the clothes the TV's the cars , all the products a person uses needed water to be produced

Sure we can have many more people if we stop producing food, and then import the food from somewhere else , but what kind of world is that?

  You wouldn't want to gamble on not producing food.  Then you are really screwed. 

  San Diego seems
to be way ahead of most cities in California with their desalination plant to open in 2016.  Desalination must be looked at AND SOON FOR OTHER CITIES.
http://www.mercurynews.com/science/ci_25859513/nations-largest-ocean-desalination-plant-goes-up-near


Nation's largest ocean desalination plant goes up near San Diego; Future of the California coast?


CARLSBAD -- On sunny afternoons, this stretch of beach 35 miles north of San Diego offers a classic So uthern California backdrop: joggers, palm trees and surfers, flanked by waves rolling in and pelicans soaring overhead.

But just across the road, another scene, unlike any other in the state's history, is playing out: More than 300 construction workers are digging trenches and assembling a vast network of pipes, tanks and high-tech equipment as three massive yellow cranes labor nearby.

The crews are building what boosters say represents California's best hope for a drought-proof water supply: the largest ocean desalination plant in the Western Hemisphere. The $1 billion project will provide 50 million gallons of drinking water a day for San Diego County when it opens in 2016.


Since the 1970s, California has dipped its toe into ocean desalination --talking, planning, debating. But for a variety of reasons -- mainly cost and environmental concerns-- the state has never taken the plunge.

Until now.

Well noted decemberfellow.    A guy in town bought a
new genny, he ran unleaded in it, low hours on it and
after 2 years the ethanol ate the genny's engine.  There's
place to get real supreme gasoline, no ethanol in it , it's
going for  $3.85  a gallon in my area, but we use it in the
tractor, lawnmower and any gas engined items we have.
The "real super"  gasoline also doesn't need stabilizer in it.

There's a small window of time when genny's get a tad cheaper,
early fall and also early spring.  I'm still kicking the tires on brands
and KW sizes, I'm having a problem finding a dual starting genny,
nowadays they've all gone to "push button start" where you're dependent
on a battery.  I want a "rip cord - pull cord" to start it and also a push
button option genny.   I hate being a battery slave. 

larsonstdoc, last summer I diced up a bunch of peaches, cooked them
with cinnamon, sugar, bit of clove and then let it cool and bagged it up
into regular zip lock quart freezer bags.  Laid it flat once filled so the bags
were stack-able in the freezer and then made peach cobbler in the winter.
It lasts and stays good for a long time in the freezer.   I'm hoping next year
this time, those peaches you saw at $3.76  a pound won't look like  a bargain!

Butter will also be effected and that's another item that freezes really well,
it doesn't require extra wrapping, just throw a pound of butter in the freezer
in its' original carton it comes in and then pull a cube out and place it in your
fridge overnight and voilla...it thaws perfectly fine and you never knew it was
frozen.    I live so far from grocery stores I've pretty much become an expert
 un-intentionally on what freezes and what doesn't.

Yeah larsonstdoc, we also run the real premium gasoline
in the tractor.  It's a big tractor too, it gets good hours to the
gallon with moving stuff around with the bolt on forklift forks
but the minute you attach something to the PTO like the big
6ft wide mower, it's a pig on gas.   I have to budget for tractor
gas literally as we get 20 gallons of it at a time.   The tractor though
has paid for itself after the first few uses compared to all the years here
when we didn't have one and did everything by hand.   

Here's a pic of the murphy's law boulder I need hubby to move with
the tractor, I changed my mind at the last minute and now it's in the
way for a future project.  this wouldn't have been possible to move
without the tractor running pricey gasoline in it LOL
