Bimboteskie et all - look at the staff reports and the conditions of approval for these projects so you can understand that the developers pay very large sums of money in development impact fees to fund road improvements and more.

You don't drink water straight from the lake. Otherwise all the animal dropping, carcasses, etc., that wash into the lake would also be in the water you drink. The water is chlorinated at the various treaments plants before it gets to you. This kills all the pathogens and other nasty bugs.

I love Rankin's comment that "the wine industry is tired being “civil” in light of the relentless attack on our constitutionally protected right to grow, process, and sell wine." Guess what, there is no such constitutionally protected right. Growing grapes might be part of the constitutionally protected investment backed expectations that one has when they buy agriculturally zoned land, but processing and selling wine isn't. Wineries are essentially an industrial process, and far too many of these operations are fast becoming de facto special event facilities. If they can't support their grandiose, overbuilt industrial facilities just based on their wine sales, then they shouldn't be in business.

Even water from the Laguna Sanitary District can be treated further and directly used for human consumption and agricultural purposes, or injected into the groundwater basin for storage. Although direct consumption of treated wastewater is not politically unpopular, some jurisdictions already treat the water so that it can be consumed, and inject it so that it is blended with the naturally occurring groundwater.

So one property owner spends $200,000 re-landscaping their property and then brings out the violins over $780 in penalties? Huh?
