Inequalities in the “beneficiaries pay” system

Food and Water Watch has released a study on the cost of the peripheral tunnels to Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) ratepayers. The study finds that homes and businesses in LAWPD will pay between $4 a month and $19 a month for the tunnels, averaged out over 40 years.   That is in addition to what they are already paying for water.

Urban residents will be paying much of the bill to move water that will go mostly to south San Joaquin Valley agriculture.
