REPOSTED From May 4, 2011 5/4/2011 Mr. Rokke, I have e-mailed you before so I’m sure you know that I (as well as many others in Yucca Valley) oppose the proposed ban on our septic tanks. A total ban on our septic tanks would merely delay further, more expensive, actions by the Regional Water Board. […]

Sewer Issue floating on poor HDWD water management practices.

By   /  October 28, 2011  /  Opinion, Yucca Valley  /  7 Comments

It looks like it is time to take more stern action against them. They have lied to us, used false and misleading tactics […]

By   /  June 19, 2011  /  News  /  14 Comments

Ok, let’s take a look at the latest propaganda being sent out by the Hi-Desert Water District: Water Notes, Summer 2011 1. HDWD begins by saying that “The question is not IF we need a Waste Water Treatment System, but can we afford it?” Well, they’re wrong. The question is STILL- Do we need a […]

4/20/11- Okay! I just got back from a looooooong conversation with Jennifer Cusack (a very nice young lady) about some of the issues with the sewer system. I’d give you a blow-by-blow description, but it would take too long. However, one of the things we talked about was the USGS report and the Peer reviews. […]

Hey John! I took a step back and looked at HOW we got into this situation. Guess what? You were right! The town and HDWD ARE at fault for this mess! And I guess I have to agree with you on the part about people shirking their duties by not becoming involved. Those who are […]

3/24/11 I was going through the Z107.7 website today and noticed that our Regional Water Board admitted that they weren’t perfect! It seems they OK’d a fluoride removal plant in 29 Palms- AND IT’S POLLUTING THE GROUNDWATER! Hmmm. Anyone know WHO was involved with THAT problem? Do we trust these people to ban the septic […]
