Letter to the Editor

For growth, but not desal

Santa Cruz Sentinel, 8/13/13

Please stop bringing out the old "against growth" chestnut every time a group of smart, insightful people oppose a project that could have catastrophic consequences for the whole community. You're doing it again in your editorial about departing water chief Bill Kocher. Those who oppose the prohibitively expensive, environmentally disastrous desalination plant are one hundred percent for growth, if growth is sustainable. To build a prohibitively expensive desalination plant that will forever damage our fragile bay might give development people the water they need to build more and more, but shame on them if they dare call it sustainable.
