Who Will Pay? Part II

Yesterday, we asked who was going to pay for the damages caused by the flooding at UCLA?  If you read the latest crop of news stories, you will get contradictory answers.  The chancellor on one occasion seemed to assert that there would be no cost to the campus for repairs to Pauley and other buildings - DWP would pay - but in another interview he seemed less clear.  Lawyers suggest there are hurdles in establishing fault.  We also learn that the powers-that-be at city hall would a) like to see the water system's aging pipes replaced but b) don't want to raise water fees to customers of DWP.  Since you can't have "a" without "b", anyone within the boundaries of LA might want to invest in sandbags.
