Olivenhain to Leucadia, Your water is funky.

ENCINITAS: Olivenhain water district votes to sue county water authority

ENCINITAS ---- Olivenhain Municipal Water District's board of directors unanimously voted Wednesday to sue the San Diego County Water Authority to prevent the agency from transferring allegedly contaminated water from Lake Hodges to Olivenhain Reservoir.

The district board says the plan to transfer at least 17,000 acre-feet of water from Lake Hodges will degrade the quality of its customers' drinking water. An acre-foot is enough water for an average family of four over a year.

The district said in a Wednesday press release that 78 federally listed hazardous waste contaminants have been found in Lake Hodges over the last 10 years.

More information can be found at the district's Web site at www.omwd.com

  6. If the water quality is so bad the why in the heck did OMWD install a pipeline costing millions of dollars to connect to Hodges?

  7. Olivenhain didn't build the pipeline, the County Water Authority built the pipeline connecting Lake Hodges to Olivenhain.
