Who will pay for flood damage? DWP?

Yesterday's posting as early reports of the water main break on Sunset Blvd. came in suggested light-heartedly a flood of Biblical proportions.  While the flooding might not have quite reached that level, so far in all of the news coverage yours truly has seen, no one has suggested who will pay for the damage to Pauley and other areas.  DWP has defended the length of time it took to shut off the water from an aged pipe that apparently predates the Westwood campus by several years.  DWP did not volunteer to pay for the campus repairs.

Some coverage:

There is some good news from the LA Times today:

"(T)here’s something even more unusual than being killed by lightning -- dying in a flood."
