Understanding Desalination and the scwd2 Pilot Plant Project at UCSC's Long Marine Laboratory (2008-2009)
This twelve-minute piece was created by Community Television of Santa Cruz County and focuses on the water problems we're facing, including the threats of drought and seawater intrusion, as well as the Integrated Water Plan approach of conservation, curtailment, and a supplemental water supply.  As desalination was selected as the supplemental supply project to further evaluate, the City of SC and Soquel Creek Water District built and operated a yearlong pilot study at UCSC's Long Marine Laboratory.
