As droughts are typical for California, why aren't desalinization plants being considered, especially in the So Cal area?? As I understand it a lot of Northern California water is diverted to So Cal which has been creating problems with our fishing and agriculture. Middle eastern countries, in particular Saudi Arabia, have huge desalinization plants to provide sufficient water for their populace. The technology is there, why aren't we using it to our benefit??
