The board of directors for the North San Joaquin Water Conservation District knows its options are limited.

The district’s infrastructure is battered. Its relationship with the public is strained. Its financial house is in disarray; it owes money to the county for elections and needs to drill extraction wells at a recharge project. The State Water Resources Control Board rapidly wants to know its plan for using the water it has a right to.

    Why would Lodi even consider buying water from the North SJ water district when they purchased more than they already need from WID? This new board is as clueless as the past dysfunctional boards without the leadership of Mr. Pilkington. Why has both th north and south delivery systems been neglected all these years under Steffani, Weinzheimer and some members of this present board? It seems to me that their major concern immediately is to draft a plan for the SWRCB to protect its right to 20,000af of water during wet years. Hasn't the city of Lodi been paying that $200,000 per year pump "tax" even though it was repealed over 2 years ago? Aren't Lodi taxpayers still paying it as a courtesy to the good old boys, even though just a small corner of Lodi is in this district. And now mr. Peterson and other "directors" are pointing the finger at Mr. Pilkington like it's his fault for the standstill with the four remaining dysfunctional board members. Quit pointing the finger and blaming others and start offering solutions and actually thinking for yourselves.
