The city leaders are not going to back down from development or change what they have already approved. Zone 7 cannot provide the volume of water to Pleasanton that is necessary to maintain what has been the norm and provide for new development.

This makes too much sense, so our local politicians would NEVER approve.

And I'm surprised the coastal commission approved of the project in Carlsbad.

Formerly Dan from BC,

If it were possible to do so, I would personally gather up the Mayors, City Managers, of all the East Bay Cities and put them into a room to discuss the future, for water requirements over the next one hundred years in the East Bay.

I would lock the door with the instruction that no one gets out until a deal is struck.

I would have all the experts available to guide the East Bay bunch through what is the readily available remedy to provide water to the East Bay for the next one hundred years.

Israel is desalinating water at a cost of $0.53 per cubic meter.

Singapore is desalinating water at a cost of $0.49 per cubic meter.

A San Leandro company (Energy Recovery Inc.) has been desalinating
water for $0.46 per cubic meter.

Desalination is much less expensive by 50% today than thirty years ago
because of the many improvements and new technology.
