The so-called public utilities are in the business of selling a commodity, so there is benefit to them in shorages as it keeps the prices high. There is no incentive to allow capture or use of the water that flows down the flood control channel as it reduces demand for the commodity. An example is the attempt of the Brookside Golf Course to get a permit to pump water out of the channel to use to refill the golf course lakes. I am told that they hit a wall every direction they turned, including with a special consultant they hired. Nobody with any say over that flood control channel water flowing to the ocean apparently wanted it used for the lakes in place of the drinking water that has been traditionally bought and used for that purpose. Why allow folks free water when you are in the business of selling it? It is a shame, in my opinion.
