In this alternate universe, one water agency sees black while the other sees white. One sees good while the other sees bad. One says yes while the other says no. And none of it would matter much — except that everyone who showers and drinks and flushes the toilet is paying for it. … That grand jury, you may recall, told these two water giants in our compact little county to get over themselves, relinquish their pricey fiefdoms and form a single, unified, regional, county-level water authority to finally speak with — and this is the grand jury’s flourish — “One Voice.”
