A public employee
of the Pine Cove Water District removed a portion of a berm on a public county road so that water would not drain down it's natural drainage points.The removal caused the water to divert through unoccupied property owned by the district. The water subsequently flowed to a private road and destroyed a lot I own by removing dirt and cutting ruts on the lot to render it unusable.It also removed two(2) parking spaces.
I asked the local area ( Idyllwild,CA) County road supervisor in to fill in the berm several months ago. I was told that his boss wanted the berm cut.I later learned that this Road employee and the water district were friends so collusion occurred between both,and no work was ever done to correct the problem.
I later asked the manager of the water to correct the problems,as he or one of his employees caused the berm removal. I was told that he would never undo the problem.
As more summer thunder storms occurred this past week more water has further damaged more of my lot. I E-mailed County of Riverside Transportation
and XXXXX XXXXX -Operations Superintendent inspected the damage with the local road employee that I talked to several months ago.That employee was fast and loose with the truth.
The up shot is that the berm is to be repaired sometime this week or next.
MY QUESTION IS "DO I ANY REDRESS TO REPAIR MY PROPERTY FROM EITHER THE RIVERSIDE COUNTY AS THEY CONTROL THE ROADS,OR THE PINE COVE WATER DISTRICT OR BOTH !!"
