Reporters Jesse Vad and Gregory Weaver talk to Kerry Klein with KVPR about their story on how taxpayers are bailing out homeowners who bought luxury houses in a development that should never have been built on groundwater.

Fresno County Supervisors approved the Mira Bella development back in the 1990s despite multiple red flags over water.

Fast forward 30 years and those warnings have come true.

Now taxpayers are helping fund a bailout via a drought relief grant from the state Department of Water Resources.
