The Carlyle Group took the bold step of selling Missoula's Mountain Water, a division of Carlyle's Park Water holdings. The sale occurred after a court condemned Mountain Water, giving the City of Missoula the right to buy their local water company for just under $90 million.
Apparently, The Carlyle Group is bigger than local governments or state public utility commissions. The billionaire boys are used to steering government, not the other way around..
