UCSC water ruling the right call

Santa Cruz Sentinel, 12/5/12

Teach the Forest, Desalination Alternatives, and the CWC, among other groups, have been organizing events on the UCSC campus that encourage students to testify at the upcoming December 5th LAFCO hearing. We (at Desalination Alternatives) are so pleased with the recent announcement that the LAFCO meeting has been canceled in the wake of the decision by the state Court of Appeals. This new ruling will allow for further understanding and investigation into the coho salmon and steelhead salmon habitat, their ability to reproduce, and our current, insufficient water supply.

We also want to urge the City Council Members to make the decision on whether to appeal the ruling in open session, as to have public input. These are exciting times for conservationists in Santa Cruz!
