Newsom pushes desalination project–environmentalists want it stopped



By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views

For years environmentalists have been suing to stop the building of a desalinization plant in Orange County—it is an environmentally bad idea, they say.  So why is Gavin Nuisance promoting it and pushing it forward?  Because the cost of the project and the water will be so high that only the rich will be able to afford the water—and the illegal aliens will get special discounts meant only for the,

‘”The lobbyist with whom Newsom dined at the French Laundry represents Poseidon Water, the company proposing a controversial $1.4 billion plant to desalinate seawater along the Orange County coast. Despite concerns that the plant would quintuple water rates and harm the environment, it’s close to obtaining final approval”

Groundwater overdraft by water hungry SoCAL creates a void into which the seawater flows, a known problem.
