Description

This "story investigated spending practices and political connections in a formerly tiny water agency whose expenditures ballooned as politicos began using it to fund pet projects and to reward allies. The expenditures were paid out of dramatically increased assessments passed on to cities -- and therefore consumers - who had no choice in whether to pay and had no say in how the agency was run."
