UCSC should pay for desal plant

Santa Cruz Sentinel, 10/3/12

The desalination plant needs to be paid for by UC Santa Cruz and the students who go to school there. That includes the cost of building it and to running it. Why should the cost fall to the people of Santa Cruz? This is something the school wants and thinks it needs. I know if I needed more water on my property and I decided to install a well the county doesn't ask everyone in Santa Cruz county to help pay for my cost? Why not tax all the non-Santa Cruz residents that go to school there. This could help defer the cost of running the plant and make UCSC and the students accountable. We don't need a plant like Marina where it's closed because it's too expensive to run!
