What part of you're polluting the Bay do our Water Leaders not get?

This news is from the Sanctuary.

Plus this is a waste of fresh water that we pollute the Bay with.(is with a preposition?)

We can use the water plus it would improve marine life in the Bay if we stopped treating the land like a gutter and running everything directly to the Bay.

Gotta love that first flush!

Current Otter research is very pointed: ongoing study compares otter mortality in pristine waters of Big Sur vs. same in Monterey Bay's polluted water (their words).

If you allow desal to proceed, you take all the money necessary to cure this pollution.

Meanwhile we could convert this waste stream to useful purpose(s).

Bacteria work for free and there are very sophisticated, patented systems to treat this water while it regenerates the aquifer.

Google Naturally Wallace, you'll see what's patented and in place in other localities for just this purpose.

Check out and understand the benefits of NOT polluting the Bay (is what the Otters would say).
