My husband and I were going to make an offer on a house and move to Dillon Beach, until reading this article today. I am horrified by the greed of this company and the way these people are forced to live. I am all for water conservation, but upon exploring CalWater.com, I am surprised to say that usage isn't the issue. These people are reusing bath water and not cleaning their medical instruments, but the amount of water you use contributes very little to the actual amount billed. The size of your meter, the service charges, taxes and additional fees are where they are really gouging customers. These residents should be better informed about their bill breakdown. I am not in the area, but I would like to know how to get involved in changing how Cal Water treats these customers and expose the lack of oversight.
