The California superior court ruled that Monterey County violated the California Environmental Quality Act by failing to evaluate their contract with the Wildlife Services program….. Which relocates and kills some native California predators.      The court determined that there is no evidence showing that predator control would not result in environmental damage.     88 percent of the animals that wildlife services handles are dispersed,  but 11 percent are killed.


According to the Center for Biological Diversity,  Monterey Wildlife Services has killed three mountain lions,  two bobcats,  and 105 coyotes in Monterey County between June 2014 and June 2015.

Cal Am customers,  whose water bills were in the upper tiers,  will be at the center of this week’s state public utilities commission hearing.     Commissioners will determine if the company should be penalized for improper water fees according to the residential allotment system.    Water bills showed massive increases between 2010 and 2014,  and mostly hurt the higher-use customers (who had more residents in their homes and were honest about the amount of people in the household).     The CPUC conducted a hearing to determine if Cal Am will be fined for this discrepancy;  but will wait until this Thursday and Friday’s hearings in San Francisco,  to make this determination.   


A potential fine for Cal Am could be from  3.1  to  310 million dollars based on this week’s testimony.
