Thieves are stealing water

From the Press Democrat:

A rural Mendocino County [California] couple lost 3,000 gallons of water last weekend to someone who illicitly drained their above-ground storage tank overnight, authorities said.

Gualala resident Kathy Dimaio, 87, discovered the loss Saturday afternoon when she went outside to water her garden and found the tank unexpectedly dry…

It was the second time this year that the tank has been emptied, though Dimaio said her husband, Richard, was not convinced it was a theft first time around…

The Dimaios’ home is about 16 miles from an earlier case reported at the Horicon School in Annapolis, where up to 13,000 gallons of water disappeared one weekend in late January, forcing the school to shut down for a day…

The campus had just trucked in a couple of tank loads five days earlier, and had to spend about $1,800 more to replace it.

When there’s a shortage, water becomes a hot commodity. Also, consider this, Wall Street Mega-Banks Are Buying Up The World’s Water:

A disturbing trend in the water sector is accelerating worldwide. The new “water barons” — the Wall Street banks and elitist multibillionaires — are buying up water all over the world at unprecedented pace.
