Desal's a boondoggle

Not enough water for endangered salmon and threatened steelhead? Sounds like another drought alarm tactic to rush residents into approving the construction of a risky and expensive desalination plant on the Westside. Besieged desal proponents are circling the wagons, while ginning up a kind of faux science solution that has no solid basis. Santa Cruzans are not stupid nor easily deceived. The proposed plant smells fishy and looks like a boondoggle. Voters and ratepayers deserve safe and proven water-solution alternatives.
