Perhaps SLVWD can sell mitigation rights using all the wetlands their rotting tanks are creating.

SLVWD does have a right to Loch water and there's already a pipeline down E. Zayante Rd. then left to the Graham Hill treatment plant in Santa Cruz. SLVWD could tap that pipeline in Olympia or Felton or Scotts Valley with or without Lompico. SLVWD and Lompico both treat stream water and ground water but would need to spend millions to treat Loch water, which has more organic contaminants. As for anyone using Loch water as an additional source during drought, the City of Santa Cruz is already releasing less into Newell Creek and shortchanging fish because they have none to spare.

Bill, first you say Lompico has enough water, then immediately you say Lompico needs additional water. Also we are in a drought now, so how can Lompico provide water to anyone? Are you saying we SHOULD build a pipe from Loch Lomond to Lompico? And finally, if you're putting down the letter writer for being a person "who always wants things done for themselves by others" then why aren't you an advocate of Lompico working it out on their own and not having SLVWD do it for them? Thanks.

Perhaps that is why there is an emergency? Because SLVWD had a plan to help a brother out.

Mr. Haddix, Lompico has enough water, it is only because of this drought that it may need additional water from SLVWD. The same fate will occur to other existing higher elevation wells in your district, and move down to lower elevations until something is done to restore the Santa Margarita groundwater basin. SLVWD owns rights to water in Loch Lomond, so by owning Lompico, it may benefit to install a pipeline to provide water for all of SLV during droughts. Lompico is bordered by SLVWD, saying that the City or Scotts Valley should help Lompico sound like something from a person who always wants things done for themselves by others.
