Last night, the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District held one of their regular board meetings. Unusual to these meetings, a few different residents from Agoura Hills and Westlake Village showed up to speak out on the controversial water tank. The first speaker was Louis Masry, son of Edward Masry (who worked with Erin Brockovich). Masry’s family were part of the fight to keep Ahmanson Ranch from being developed.

Masry, in his comments to LVMWD Board Directors, spoke about the need to take a “pause” on the tank because people still have questions “that the community wants answers to.” That those questions need to be answered first. And, if residents aren’t satisfied, then the issue may be best solved by District customers voting on the issue.

Residents and ratepayers should make their views (pro or con) known to LVMWD General Manager David Pedersen at or call LVMWD at 818-251-2100. As always, feel free to cc (or not) on your emails as well as others you want to inform in the community, or those you feel that can have an impact: other news outlets, or community leaders.
