Illegal Dumping

Please help watch for and report Illegal Dumping.  DO NOT confront the illegal dumpers yourself!


Illegal dumping is becoming more and more of a problem and is not good for the community.

Why is Illegal Dumping a serious

problem for the Community?

There are three main reasons: money, health, and the environment.

Specifically, illegal dumping:

• Is a community eyesore

• Decreases neighborhood property values

• Costs taxpayers millions of dollars in clean-up costs

• Negatively impacts plants and wildlife

• Poses safety hazards to people, especially children

• Provides a breeding ground for disease-carrying rodents, insects and other vermin

• Disrupts natural land and water processes

• Pollutes surface and groundwater

August 2017 Article in the Sacramento Bee regarding Chromium 6 Ruling.

CalMutuals President, Lisa Yamashita-Lopez and Twentynine Palms Water District General Manager, Ray Kolisz have written an Op/Ed, published in the Sacramento Bee.

In the article, Yamashita-Lopez and Kolisz thank the State Water Board for choosing not to appeal a recent court decision invalidating the maximum contaminant level for Chromium 6. The court found there had been no economic feasibility analysis before imposing an extremely high standard that resulted in smaller water systems, many within disadvantaged communities, being disproportionately impacted by the financial burdens associated with the new standard.

Assembly Bill 401 - Low Income Water Rate Assistance Program.

The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) is now in discussions with water companies throughout the state regarding the logistics and feasibility of implementing AB 401 (Low-Income Assistance with water bills).  Everyone involved is working together to come up with program scenarios and cost estimates that work for everyone.  AB-401 is projected to be implemented sometime in 2018.

As more details are made available to us we will provide shareholders with the information.
