Rationing water means less revenue for the city

Santa Cruz Sentinel, 4/10/14

I wonder if the city of Santa Cruz has pushed desalination all these years because it knew that conservation by residents would mean losing revenue by selling customers less water? Desal means an endless water source, an endless source of revenue, along with an inevitable 'reasonable request' to raise rates (even more revenue) to pay for it.
