Do Amador Citizens Want Highest Water Rates in the State? ~ Sean Kriletich

Jackson, CA...Hello Amador Citizens: Do you want the award for the HIGHEST water rates in the State of California and quite possibly the Nation? Do you want the Amador Water Agency to remove another eight and half million dollars from our local economy every year?





Do you want to trust that this money will go to "a good cause" even after the 2019 Amador Grand Jury report concluded that “(AWA) is an organization facing…an overall lack of the most fundamental aspects of public accountability.“?

If you answered NO to 1 or more of these questions, please attend the Public Hearing, Tuesday, July 27, 6:30 pm at 810 Court St in Jackson.

If you are an AWA customer, submit your protest at or before the meeting. http://amadorwatchdog.org/protestform.pdf

The money you save will be your own, the economy you save will be ours.

      Your missing the point! 2,500 marijuana plants planted in sitter creek. Maybe 15,000 gallons of water per day. Think about it.

          It's right next to Chitter creek. Me and my brother Darrell went fishing there couple a years ago it was. Put our canoe in the water and in a couple of mins Darrell had a whopper on the line. Not one of them Italian ones either, well long story short, we hit the rapids, Darrell lost the fish, I lost the paddle and we was up Chitter Creek without a paddle.

          Spell check overrode Sutter, in case you can’t figure it out! Yes I didn’t proof read. I’m usually perfect.

        Why would grapes be better than cannabis? Just curious; don’t know much about growing either.

              You are the ignorant one. Most of California soil is a disaster left over from mining times. Organic testing of the soil should be done before anything is grown commercially and sold to unsuspecting consumers. Add non organic pesticides and fertilizer to the mix and you have a cancer causing product.

Many commenters seem to be confusing the obligations of a special district, which is responsible to the public it provides a service to, and the rights of private property owners.
While you might not be able to do anything about what you neighbor can legally do, you can make sure your water utility is acting in your best interest.

This article is written for Amador, the citizens they are well aware of the problem but most here are not.

Long corrupt historic short story is:
Giant sewer lines run right in the middle of the creek. You can see the pipes and caps from Hwy 49 & 88. The ancient pipes leak and overflow when the water rises (so much so it has been known to flood lower Jackson by the Police Dept. and all along the creek.

A newer concerned employee reported it to the state some years ago. The city is now being fined large amounts for the disaster that has been happening for eons. The money will be coming from rate/taxpayers one way or another. It needs to be fixed, it is unsanitary for all and an environmental disaster to everyone.

Just like here in Calaveras, unsavory entities have gained control of the local newspapers and try to control the simple truths they do not want disclosed. Each day we lose more of our tight knit communities to non residents. People would talk with their neighbors each dad about issues. Small town life is being destroyed by those who only seek to profit and then move on when the community is destroyed.

Sutter Creek is worse sewer actually leaks everywhere and the stench is evident most days.

We have some of the same issues here. Poker Flat/Lake Tulloch has a nasty sewer problem. All those expensive homes sitting on a sewer pond polluting the water for all below it. Who will pay?

Jackson's homeless problem is starting to overflow into Calaveras. There are 2 homeless camps down the Mokelumne River full of felons. As Jackson pushes the homeless into motels the worst move this way. Sheriff, fFre, BLM, Fish and Game and EBMUD are constanty at the Hwy 49 Big Bar river access as the homeless fill it up and sit there dealing drugs, throwing out trash and more.

It's going to get much worse as we fall to this Depression and more fall out from the cities. We need to be proactive not reactive. Stay alert and be observant for your own safety.
