I had difficulty sleeping in the wee hours of this morning, so I switched on the television and tapped into Netflix streaming. The title I chose was “Water and Power: A California Heist.” It is a National Geographic production which reveals how a handful of water barons managed to gain control of our state’s public water resources and privatize them.
Because my own local water company (Golden State Water) recently proposed 41% in rate hikes over the next couple years, and local citizens had concerns because of it, I found it timely to watch.
I think all Californians might find it educational to view. Here’s a link to the trailer as provided by National Geographic.
