Monday, Jan. 22, 2007 | Re: “Under Sanders, Water Could Go Private.” The closest thing to an objective study on this topic was conducted a few years ago by the UCSB Donald Bren School of Environmental Science and Management. The full report can be downloaded/viewed here

It analyzes Thousand Oaks, California, where part of the city is served by a municipally managed system, with the balance of the community served by two different investor owned utilities. It deals with everything from taxes, rates, and service to foreign corporation ownership of domestic water systems. Have fun.
