Let’s desalinize for all the water we need

I am in favor of desalinization plants up and down the coast of California. The governor needs to drop this train to nowhere and instead get on board with a new source of water.

That source is the water in our own backyard.

The cities of Santa Barbara, Avalon, Carlsbad and Port Huenme all have or will have plants up and running by this summer. I can’t believe people who advocate water conservation in a state with all the water we could possibly need or want.

We could turn our state into a virtual paradise with this new source.

We also could sell water to neighboring states that need it. We could fill our lakes and streams for boating and fishing.

The farmers could have all the water they need to grow our food.

The city of Santa Clarita could pump water up from a desalinization plant in Ventura for drinking and other use.
Back in the 1960s, President Kennedy said he would like to see our country land a man on the moon, and we did just that.

Desalinized water is not a pipe dream. This can be a reality if enough people get on board.
