Synopsis

If you live within the Las Virgenes Metropolitan Water District area (Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Westlake Village, and Hidden Hills), now is your chance to voice your opinion: Should LVMWD build a water storage tank even if it means water rate increases? Or should it not build additional infrastructure and hold off increases as long as possible?

Remember: If you don’t say something now, don’t complain later if you don’t like the result. ๐Ÿ™‚

The survey asks for your opinion on just three things:
– current system reliability
– rate increases and water tank construction
– whether you want the water district to make it easier to conserve

Spend 60 seconds, and take the survey now:

Forward the Survey

The more people that voice their opinion to build or not, the better. Please forward this to anyone within Agoura, Calabasas, Westlake Village, Hidden Hills, or unincorporated portions of western Los Angeles County served by Westlake Village, Agoura, Calabasas.

Background

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.
