LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 15, 2019--

Gloria Gray, chairwoman of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California Board of Directors, issued the following statement on Metropolitan’s offer to compromise to the San Diego County Water Authority:

“Today, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California has made a statutory offer to compromise to the San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA) to resolve several rate cases filed by SDCWA, leading to nearly a decade of ongoing litigation. With another trial upcoming, and our Board and many prominent leaders in San Diego desiring a more collaborative approach to providing water services in our region, this is an opportune time to end these disputes. It is in a spirit of cooperation that Metropolitan is proposing a resolution to the lawsuits that will set us on a more positive and productive course to meet the future water needs for Southern California.”
