Who Pays For WATER LOSS When Construction Workers Break WATER MAINS?

I’ve got one for you? With California in the midst of a major drought, who pays for water loss when construction workers break water mains causing mass flooding and loss of water? I thought about this today while I was watching the evening news. The lead story in most newscasts on TV & Radio was all about a water main break in Downtown San Diego at First Avenue & F Streets. It seems a construction company is responsible for the break, and should shoulder the blame for the water loss. After all, aren’t we threatened with fines if we are caught wasting water? What could be more of a waste than having a water main broken? We know the crew didn’t intentionally break the “main,” but that “goes with the flow,” so to speak. There should be more careful consideration when doing such work, especially during the drought!
Put in a call to your city, county and state legislators. Let them know how you think. PLEASE don’t take that California laid back attitude. We have to look out for each other. Don’t let things like this go away without notice and penalty. Amen!
