"Energy Recovery to Save Carlsbad Desalination Plant $12 Million ..."
http://www.sacbee.com/2013/07/30/560...-carls...

The Poseidon Company that sponsored DesalScam has 'discovered' a way to cut its costs by $12 million a year, but only after they got the contract that will cost us $3.5 billion.'Course that's just a tiny quarter-billion more in profits during the 20-year payment period, but those little bits add up to the savvy investors. They are lucky indeed.

It's unfortunate that we who will pay the $3,500 per homesite won't benefit from this. But then, we cannot expect our elected and appointed officials to be dedicated enough to find out about this and the graphene filter tech that will save even more by reducing the energy required by this plant.

Our threads predicting 'unexpected' profits were removed from local forums but we'll see this story as a front-page headline,(although without details), right?. And Poseidon's CEO will make sure the savings are passed through to all customers, right?

Meanwhile, five times as much water as this plant will produce continues to lie unused under the Lake Henshaw watershed. More than enough to make the entire $14 billion "Emergency Storage Plan" unnecessary. The San Diego County water managers who dreamed up that scam were either brilliant schemers or dutiful servants of contractors and water profiteers that persuaded them to abuse the powers of government to lay a ~$14,000 debt against every County home.
