For the truly troubled, the engineers, and the DWP faithful: the report on water main leaks

Overdue programming note: our own Patt Morrison talked to the LADWP's Jim McDaniel the other day, as well as Jean-Pierre Bardet; you can find their conversations on Patt's show site.

Also, if anyone else out there has a penchant for reading incredibly long reports broken up with occasional pictures and graphs, I've got you covered. Below is the independent third party report Bardet and his team presented to the city council earlier this week.

Incidentally, if Professor Bardet's name sounds at all familiar - it might be because we've talked to him at KPCC before. Last December I talked to him for a series I did about ideas of sustainability in Southern California; you can hear the conversation here. He mentioned the project at the time, but hadn't gotten the full results, including various pilot studies, finished then.
