(Listen to the audio clip) www.audioo.com/listen/track/08cd1616a5a450bAfter hearing this clip I think you will agree that Greensboro has no WC program and no WC workers. And that's odd because Greensboro is always complaining about not having enough water.
1. Water sales are well below forecast for many years now and the Water Department is cash poor. It could stop its expansion but since it is a monopoly instead it will raise your rates. 2. Greensboro’s most profitable water customers, manufacturers have gone to Asia. Losing those huge accounts has been disastrous to municipal water sellers like Greensboro. So residential water accounts must make up (chip in) for the significant loss of revenue in this post-industrial age. Chinese manufacturing is raising your water bill. The News & Record won't tell you this. The City won't tell you either. That's why I am filing these reports.3. During this Randleman era water sales were expected to increase. They decreased. The profit from increased water sales was supposed to pay for the Randleman Dam, the Randleman Reservoir, the Randleman Water Plant and the Randleman water lines. Now the deficit must be made up by the taxpayers and water rate payers. Greensboro is obligated by the dam contract to continue with the dam projects. So the city must pretend that it still needs Randleman’s water to keep those funds coming. The drought has become the dam scammer's best friend because it is nicely masking the decline in water use. They won't tell you that once it becomes more than a fish sanctuary, Randleman Reservoir will be empty during a drought just like every other reservoir becomes empty during a drought.
