Desal opponents to discuss environmental report

Santa Cruz Sentinel, 6/12/13

Members of the Desal Alternatives group will present their response to a draft environmental impact report for a proposed desalination plant during a meeting Thursday at the Quaker Meetinghouse, 225 Rooney St.

Rick Longinotti, a founder of Desal Alternatives, and Jan Bentley, retired city superintendent of water production, will make the 7 p.m. presentation. Longinotti argues there are significant impacts to the environment, chiefly through increased energy use.

Admission is free, though a $10 donation is requested. For information, go to or 831-515-8072.
