One Response to What other communities are doing

  1. Mary Webb says:

    Thanks go out to all who are active in this desalination issue statewide. Water districts must enforce and verify water conservation practices, recycling and other means of augmenting water supplies and reducing demand before pursuing this costly technology. Water agencies should post monthly customer billing data at their websites to verify water use and production numbers. Our community in Cambria sponsored Jim Fryer to investigate the Cambria Desalination debacle utilizing 20 years worth of billing data.
