Desal thankfully comes to halt

Santa Cruz Sentinel, 8/21/13

I am very pleased that the institution of the city has finally got around to listening to the voters when it comes to plans for a desal plant. Though the idea of pump stations on the Westside certainly didn't help its popularity, there were other options for the pumps. The real reason that people are not supporting desal is because it doesn't make ecological or financial sense. Of course the city may have done it anyway were it not for the work of a determined group of activists including Rick Longinotti, Doug Engfer, Matilda Rand, Bruce Van Allen, Paul Gratz and many many more. For forcing the city to act on the will of its people, they deserve our thanks.
