Political Issue:
Desalination The speculation about the plan for putting a 2.5 million gallon/day ocean water desalination plant on the city’s Westside (for conjunctive use with neighboring Soquel Creek Water District, which is in a pretty tight spot with its imminent threat of saltwater aquifer intrusion) has just grown with time, resulting most recently in the push for a ballot measure that would allow the public to vote

 on the project, and a counter offer by the city that would also bring desal to the ballot. Visit and for more info.
