Will each Carlsbad home that receives a half-acre-foot of water from the desalinator have to pay the $1,850 yearly cost of this water for 20 years?

Course not! The County Water District managers spent a lot of our money hiring professional liars to mislead us through news reporters so that we do not become outraged about buying this water for the influential 10% of our population that knows imported water is not fit to drink or bathe-swim in.

The 90% of us who use less than half the national average 100 gallons per day will have to pay off that debt because we helped elect County Supervisors whose primary concern is continuing to be Superviisors.

If we'd selected a majority of capable, conscientious politicians city and county officies this project would have been killed off immediately. But the ones we chose were not bright enough to avoid being "re-educated" by the professional liars that serve our water districts. So the Monopoly game will go on with us paying and paying for each new form of extortion.
