As 10,000 plus people waited for Manteca's most visible landmark to come tumbling down in March of 1997, then Mayor Bill Perry stood outside of Spreckels Sugar's main gate along then two-lane East Yosemite Avenue.
Imagine South San Joaquin Irrigation District being able to reduce water use by 60,000 or so acre feet annually. That's enough water based on Manteca's current per capita use of 150 gallons a day to meet the needs of 357,099 Californians for a year or a city the size of Bakersfield.
How advantageous is it for the Building Industry Association of the Delta headed by Jon Beckman who once served as a councilman in the fairly slow growth community of Lodi to get the developers he advocates for to play ball with the Manteca Unified School District?
