Congressional Delegates Beg For Desal Plant

070620-Split-Ekj-DesalAccording to the North County Times San Diego’s five congressional delegates have gotten together and sent a letter California Coastal Commission begging them to approve the Carlsbad Desalination Plant when they meet Nov. 15, 2007 on the project.

The letter states that the plant would enable the county to “pursue a water diversification strategy” to complement conservation and reclamation efforts. It was signed by Darrell Issa, R-Vista; Brian Bilbray, R-Solana Beach; Duncan Hunter, R-El Cajon; Bob Filner, D-San Diego; and Susan Davis, R-San Diego. . . It also suggests that the plant would reduce pressure on the state’s imported water system.

We would like the idea so much more if it wasn’t in our backyard. How about making it part of the Ponto Vision Plan?

Quit being a NIMBY. The plant would provide good resources for us and would be a use of property that wouldn’t add to traffic. Bring it on!
