Desalination plants are energy-intensive users. Burning oil to produce water does not make good economic sense. Additional surface water storage, at higher elevations, does make sense. I would rather see the State of California embark on a major renewal of Western water resource development. Private vendors and municipalities will make water costs untenable for agricultural interests. Farmers should take notice.

I thought the Monterey Bay was a Marine Sanctuary.

Lets stop sending urban runoff into the Bay
Slow, spread and store rain water.
Let it get back into the groundwater.
Why all the storm-drains flushing expensive water as pollution into the sea?

REported, "Product water would cost about $1,200 per acre-foot, backers estimate, compared to as much as $7,900 for the regional seawater desalination plant proposed by a public-private partnership ....
Backers said their proposal is not intended to compete with the regional plant."
One-Sixth the cost of a public pork project, and NOT intended to compete????
Give me a break.

Why not end the overdraft of the Pajaro Valley aquafir. The overdraft caused by the berry growers must come to an end. The amount of water in the ground is limited. We have already past this point. Anymore property developement should be based on available water reserves. Which there are NONE. To be water wise all developement must be based on available water. Agriculture needs to return to less water dependant than berries. When the ground water recovers to a sustanable level then we will not require expensive, energy gobbelling water desal plants.

I think we need another four or five nuclear power plants and we'll have all the power we need to desalinate and, eventually, drain the oceans.
This will open up new land for housing and freeways which are desperately needed to help us reach the target of 200 billion humans living in abject despair and crushing poverty, ruled by the iron fist of an intergalactic warlord.
Wait, I'm all confused with Scientology again.
