How Did Our Water Come to This?

Letter to the Editor:

We are unhappy to report that we are South Pasadena residents experiencing ugly, brown water with junk in it in our home and garden. When we moved here in 1964, South Pasadena, as a city, was proud to tell us we had our own city water wells and you could safely drink water from the tap. We felt safe. No longer do we feel that way.

I am surprised that we have funds to build “dog parks” and “bicycle trails” but allow our water system to deteriorate to what it is now.

Please take this issue seriously – it has been psychologically damaging so far.
