MWD Headquarters. The building cost more than $100 million. An investigation into MWD field trips is raising questions about who is going on the trips and benefiting from them.

A KPCC investigation has raised questions about hundreds of out-of-town trips sponsored by a local public agency.

The Metropolitan Water District (MWD) has spent more than $2 million in public money in the past three years on weekend field trips to water facilities. 

KPCC's Alice Walton reports the presence of MWD board members' relatives, campaign donors and those with business before the agency has raised questions about who is benefiting from the outings.
