The Water Management District and the residents of Monterey need to have a voice in any plan. If we would ultimately have to pay for the project through increased water rates, we deserve representation.

this desal plant has, in one form or another, been "on the table'" for probably 39 years or more. I remember it being hailed as the greatest thing since unleaded fuel. But, as with most large projects on the peninsula, it keeps getting put aside for one reason or another. If this had been built when it was first proposed, the peninsula would not be having the problems it has today. Don' t wait another 30 years, or until you run out of water completely. Just build it, and the rest will handle itself.

The political a**holes in the enviro movement do not want. any. new. water. source. anywhere. in. monterey. county. Once you understand this point, you will not be surprised when this project is killed by one of the many totalitarian reveiw boards we have in California. The fix is in. This plant will never be built. No new water source will ever be built. That was decided long ago by people whose identity is unknown to most of us. Anyone proposing any sort of water project in Mty Cty is just spinning their wheels. Bank on it.
