Item 8.01                       Other Events

As previously reported with respect to the Company's lawsuit against the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California ("Metropolitan"), on April 21, 2008 Judge Jane Johnson set a trial date for May 5, 2008, pending the outcome of a mandatory settlement conference before Judge Peter Lichtman.

The initial mandatory settlement conference was held on April 30, 2008.  Following the conference, Judge Johnson issued a 30 day stay of all proceedings while Judge Lichtman continues his ongoing mediation.  If the parties do not ultimately reach an agreement through the settlement conference process and Judge Lichtman declares an impasse, the Court will set a new trial date.  As is normal in such legal proceedings, applicable dates will be set and, if necessary, revised by the Court based upon availability within the Court's calendar.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
