Desal pump station wrong for West Cliff

Santa Cruz Sentinel, 7/13/13

West Cliff is one of the most beautiful places on the planet, with its five mile walk/run, stunning views, and many quiet places to sit and enjoy the Bay. People come from throughout the county and beyond to enjoy this uniquely accessible and inspiring place. But now West Cliff Drive is a potential target for an ugly, noisy, polluting, industrial installation, a 2,500-square-foot seawater desalination pump station (intake and out-take) that sounds like a freeway and which is intended to operate year round, 24/7. I can't think of a more inappropriate location for such an industrial installation than on West Cliff Drive.
