Surfrider Foundation Says No Desalination

by The Editors on October 16, 2007

While local government and other groups are well behind the proposed Carlsbad Desalination Plant the Surfrider Foundation is still asking people to do all they can to stop it.

This project would be the largest and most damaging ocean desalination facility in the western hemisphere and should not move forward if we want to improve the health of our coastal areas and ocean water quality. Though there is never a good reason to destroy public coastal property, this project is especially threatening because it will cause the destruction of marine life and ecosystems of one of Southern California’s last remaining coastal lagoons, and exacerbate global warming.

They’ve posted a form letter on their website that will allow people to send email to Coastal Commission Chair Patrick Kruer and Lt. Gov. John Garamendi asking that they vote no on the project. If you’re against this project, please click the link to take action.
