KERN COUNTY GRAND JURY REPORT ON
LEBEC COUNTY WATER DISTRICT

SUMMARY:

The 2011-2012 Kern County Grand Jury (Grand Jury) investigated the Lebec County Water District (LCWD) in response to complaints about the 2011 Rate Increase for the District. An Ad-Hoc Committee was formed and a report titled “Lebec County Water District 2011 Rate Increase” was published by the Grand Jury. The first report did not have recommendations to the District and no response by the District was required.

Other complaints made to the 2011-2012 Kern County Grand Jury about the District and investigated by the Ad-Hoc Committee resulted in two comprehensive reports titled “Lebec County Water District 12 Inch Line” and “Lebec County Water District Board of Directors.” Recommendations made in both reports by the Kern County Grand Jury have not received a proper response:

“2011-2012 LCWD 12 Inch Line Report Recommendations:

R1. The Board of Directors should abide by the Policy and Procedure Manual and adhere to the Brown Act and the Robert’s Rules of Order as directed in the Manual. Training on proper Parliamentary Procedure and the Brown Act should be considered for all Board members.

R2. The current Board Secretary/Treasurer should recuse from any and all discussion and/or voting by the Board concerning the 12” line.

R3. The Board of Directors should seek advice from their Legal Advisors and the District Engineers as to approval and/or acceptance of the disputed 12” line.

R4. The District should immediately establish the proper fire-flow of water to provide adequate water use continually for all customers and the Fire Department. In case of a fire emergency, all areas of the District, including simultaneously Chimney Canyon and the hotel, must have enough water pressure for the Fire Department to effectively subdue the fire.”

“2011-2012 LCWD Board of Directors Report Recommendation:

R1. Based on the foregoing, it appears to the Grand Jury that the Lebec County Water District is not operating in a manner that serves the best interest of the public. Accordingly, the Grand Jury recommends that District Board Members who consistently fail to comply with the District’s policies and/or their own responsibilities as members of the Board, should either obtain formal training on those matters and conduct themselves accordingly, or resign from the Board.”

PURPOSE OF INQUIRY:

The Special Districts Committee of the 2012-2013 Kern County Grand Jury inquired into the operation of the Lebec County Water District pursuant to California Penal Code §933.5 to follow up on the previous (2011-2012) Grand Jury reports in response to further complaints about the LCWD. 

PROCESS:

Committee members obtained background information about the District by: • Review of all 2011-2012 Grand Jury Reports • Reply to a survey mailed to the District Manager in 2009 • Reply to a survey mailed to the Board of Directors in 2012 and 2013 • Agendas and minutes of Board meetings from 2012 • Announced and unannounced visits to the District • Interview with Office Manager on December 5, 2012 • Interview with employees of the District on December 5, 2012 • Interviews with other persons regarding the District • California Form 700 documents for current Board Members • Information from the online website established February 2013 • Policy and Procedures Manual for the District dated April 2011

BACKGROUND:

The District was created on December 26, 1967, to provide for organization and management of water works and for the acquisition or construction of facilities to distribute and sell water.

FINDINGS:

F1. The District hired a Water Management Company on a five year contract to handle billing, meter reading, water production and maintenance in November 2011. The Office Manager employed by the District was hired by the Water Management Company. The Water Management Company provided a General Manager.

F2. The Water Management Company’s services were terminated by the District on October 26, 2012. The General Manager was transferred to another aspect of the Water Management Company.

F3. The Office Manager was on leave of absence in October 2012 and was terminated by the Water Management Company when the Water Management Company was dismissed by the District.

F4. The current Office Manager (previously a part time office worker for the Water Management Company) and Water Operations Manager (also an employee of the Water Management Company) were notified by the District Board of the pending termination of the Water Management Company and urged to apply for work with the District.

F5. A Water Operator on disciplinary leave at the time of the dismissal of the Water Management Company was terminated. and A second Water Operator was relocated to a separate job location within the Water Management Company.

F6. The open job positions for Office Manager and Water Operations Manager were not posted for any other applicants to apply.

F7. The Office Manager on leave of absence was not notified or offered the Office Manager position upon termination of the Water Management Company (a job the Office Manager had previously held).

F9. The District has no General Manager.

F10. The District does not provide benefits to the employees.

COMMENTS:

The Committee appreciates the information given to complete the report. However, the Committee was met on many occasions with obstacles, resistance and a certain degree of hostility. The Board was not cooperative and the employees, although polite, would not provide information unless specifically instructed to provide the information by subpoena.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

R1. Proper responses to the previous two 2011-2012 Kern County Grand Jury reports should be made, on District letterhead, and signed by the Board of Directors.

R2. When funds become available the District should purchase another District vehicle for the second Water Operator to drive to perform job requirements.

R3. The District vehicle should be appropriately marked with a District decal for identification.

R4. When funds become available the District should provide medical benefits to the employees.

R5. All Board Members should complete AB1234 Ethics Training every two years.

NOTES:

The Lebec County Water District should post a copy of this report where it will be available for public review.

BOIL WATER NOTICE FOR AFFECTED CUSTOMERS OF LEBEC COUNTY WATER DISTRICT IN ZONE A

Este informe contiene información muy importante sobre su agua potable.

Failure to Follow This Advisory Could Result in Stomach or Intestinal Illness

Today, June 21, 2012, we attempted to isolate a service line that goes between two (2) of our system wells to avoid an interruption in service and repair a line break. An isolation valve that was turned off failed to work properly. One hundred sixty four (164) locations in “Lebec Zone” may have been affected by this line break. We expect to have the line repaired later today, June 21, 2012. Once repairs have been completed, all affected customers in “Zone A” should have water with adequate pressure.

Loss of pressure and water outage for an extended period of time in the affected portion of the distribution system within “Zone A” may have caused possible contamination of the water supply by potentially harmful microorganisms. After completion of this work, our certified distribution operator will be disinfecting the distribution system. We will be collecting special bacteriological quality samples after flushing to verify the bacteriological quality of the water being supplied by Lebec County Water District. However, this alone is not adequate to protect public health. Therefore, the California Department of Public Health in conjunction with the Lebec County Water District are advising the customers of “Zone A” that are served by Lebec CWD to boil their tap water or use bottled water for drinking and cooking purposes as a safety precaution.

All tap water used for drinking or cooking should be boiled rapidly for at least 1 minute. This is the preferred method to assure that the water is safe to drink.

You will be notified when it is no longer necessary to boil your drinking water.

Upon return of water service, if your water looks cloudy or dirty, you should flush the line until the water appears clear and the water quality returns to normal. Do not be alarmed if you notice a chlorine taste or smell in your water since chlorine is used to disinfect the lines after leaks and/or water outages occur.

For more information call:

Please call Karin Willson with Lebec County Water District at (661) 248-6872 or the California Department of Public Health at (661) 335-7315.
