The Search For Water For The City Of Weed, Plus Lawsuits


Water is always a complicated subject in California, and perhaps more complicated in Weed. The city does not own its water source, Roseburg Forest Products does.

So the city is working to secure a new water source while the lawsuits fly. Some of those suits have been filed by the company against residents of Weed involved with the group Water for Citizens of Weed California (WCWC), including the "Weed 9" who have expressed objections to RFP's behavior.

We sort this out with Bruce Shoemaker from WCWC and Rebecca Chapman from the Civil Liberties Defense Center.
