Why Should We Care About Local Control?

FINANCIAL BENEFIT
Our water money will stay in Claremont, not fill Wall Street coffers.
WE SET OUR OWN RATES
We will be out from under corporate profit interests and inefficient PUC control, and instead be governed by locally elected officials.
SECURE WATER FUTURE
Our water system will not be bought out by a foreign water cartel.
LOWER WATER BILLS
Probably not right away, but a huge drop as the bonds are paid off.
NO NEW TAXES
It’s paid for through water bills that can ONLY be used for the system.
WE WILL HAVE RELIABLE PURE WATER
Our neighboring cities provide their own, and we can do it too.
PROFESSIONAL CAPACITY
We can partner with a neighboring city or contractor with proven capability.
GRANTS AVAILABLE FOR LOCAL WATER SYSTEMS
Some programs are not open to for-profit companies.
WE CAN WORK TOWARD WATER INDEPENDENCE
We will use our local water to the fullest, conserve, and reclaim.
NO MORE CORPORATE MONOPOLY
No more regional rates, hidden information, marginalization and misinformation.
NO MORE EXCESSIVE EXECUTIVE PAY
Local officials will run the system.
OUR WATER FUTURE WILL BE IN OUR HANDS
Decisions will be made right here, by us, in our own best interest.
