The company Enron formed to gain control of water
rights in California and other states is Azurix.
You can find many references via a search of google.com with Azurix and California in the search string.
A lexis-nexis search would also yield a good bit if your paper is a subscriber.
The deregulation and corporate monopolization
of world water supplies is well underway.
In the US, cash-strapped municipalities are selling their public water utilities to private companies
at an alarming rate. And who is one of the biggest buyers?
You guessed it, Enron (although they are supposed to be selling their North American water

Enron is one of the Bushies biggest contributors and co-conspirators in the last energy crisis in California.
Just wait until you have your first water crisis .

You think $1000 a month electricity is bad?
You think $3 a gallon gasoline is bad?
Wait till the Bush Family Evil Empire controls the price of fresh water.
