Why should we have to pay?

Why should we have to pay outrageously expensive sewer bills for a treatment facility that really shouldn’t be our responsibility in the first place? Since a high percentage of the salt is introduced by users upstream from us, shouldn’t they also be made to pay their fare share? 

With Measure S, we’ve done more than our share already and certainly shouldn’t be asked to shoulder the entire burden. If this desalinization plant really needs to be built, shouldn’t the costs be shared by upstream ratepayers as well?

It is unfair that Santa Clarita residents should have to single-handedly subsidize farmers growing crops that basically shouldn’t be grown in Southern California. Since strawberries and avocados don’t grow well in the desert, why can’t farmers go back to growing the citrus crops as they were before?

In the midst of one of our worst recessions, we should absolutely not be forced to carry this outrageously expensive and unfair burden.
