Beginning of American Water Wars...

•, J. D. Heyes
As reported by The Press Democrat newspaper, Gualala resident Kathy Dimaio, 87, discovered that her tank had been drained when she ventured outside on May 24 in the afternoon to water her garden.

Per the local newspaper:

Dimaio was so angry she could barely articulate her fury and frustration Tuesday. "This is just ... aurghrgh!" she said.

Other thefts have occurred in the same region

The recent theft was the second time in the past year that the tank had been drained, but Dimaio said her husband, Richard, was not completely convinced that the first time was an actual theft. The couple, who are longtime residents of the area, did not report the first incident to law enforcement personnel. They said they believed the first time happened in January.

At the time of the second occurrence, the tank had been full, the couple said, storing water pumped in from a well on their property for use in their yard and vegetable garden.
