The water system was government owned and operated (WASA) but was sold to the employees and the production contract was made to this private corporation with the necessary specialized knowledge to operate an RO system.
Going backwards to government operation would be a BIG mistake!
Thanks Jesse, I apreciate the perspective and I'm more than inclined to agree. I questioned which was the lesser of two evils in an earlier post and I guess your informationmakes it pretty clear to me. I really have little more to add except to ask whether it comes down to someone at BWS being told to "get some!" or whether they're just hamstrung until the current contract expires.
