Keith Vandevere has been involved in Monterey Peninsula water issues since the early 1980s. He managed the successful campaign to defeat the New Los Padres Dam in 1995 and has served on the Monterey County Planning Commission since 2003. He has commented on water issues on his blog, Xasauan Today, since 2008.
The Monterey Peninsula has a long history of trying to take our privately-owned water utility, Cal Am, into public ownership. A number of attempts have been made since Cal Am bought our water system in 1966 and even before that.
Keith with present the history and the issues involved in the various efforts.
Let’s know our history so that we are not doomed to repeat it!
