Since the building of a water storage tank by Las Virgenes Metropolitan Water District affects all customers in the service area (e.g., including water rate increases to all customers in Westlake Village, Agoura, Calabasas, etc…), Westlake Revelations has put together a QuickPoll giving area residents the easiest way to voice their opinion on whether or not LVMWD should build the tank.
Take the survey:

The more people that voice their opinion to build or not, the better. Please forward this to anyone within Westlake Village, Agoura, Calabasas, Hidden Hills, or unincorporated portions of western Los Angeles County served by Westlake Village, Agoura, Calabasas.
As has recently been written about, Las Virgenes Metropolitan Water District would like to spend $6-8 million adding a 5 million gallon storage tank as part of a backbone upgrade system. The tank is expected to be located at the Westlake reservoir with construction traffic through Lindero Canyon Road, Triunfo Canyon Road, possibly Westlake Blvd., and Three Springs Drive.
The District’s primary reasoning includes planning for substantive population growth, increased reliability of the water system, rising overhead costs, water usage growth, conservation, lower water acquisition rates, and increased fire protection.
Those that have reviewed hundreds of pages of documentation and information provided by LVMWD, say that the more they read, the less they think the tank is necessary — and that the District has not only not vetted out other ideas, but has not shown why it is necessary.
