Respond to the Santa Cruz Desal EIR--a non-Sierra Club event of importance.

The Draft EIR claims that there are no significant environmental impacts of the Desal plant, despite the fact that desal is estimated to be ten times as energy intensive as current Santa Cruz water supply!

Come hear these speakers:

Overview: Rick Longinotti, Santa Cruz Desal Alternatives

Q & A: Jan Bentley, retired City Superintendent of Water Production

"How to Comment on the EIR" with Keith Sugar, environmental attorney


The public can respond to the Draft Environmental Impact Report on Desal:

June 3rd, 12-2:30pm, Seacliff Inn, Aptos

July 1, 6:30-9pm, First Congregational Church, Santa Cruz

or write a comment and send it to [masked] by July 15


Should the City & Soquel District belong to a desal lobbying organization?

From the CalDesal website: "CalDesal, a non-profit organization composed of water industry leaders, is helping lead efforts to expand ocean desalination where feasible by advocating for funding and policies to promote use of this important technology."

Does membership in this organization, and leadership of this organization (SC Water Director, Bill Kocher is vice-president) conflict with our water agencies' role of impartial evaluation of alternatives to meet our water challenges?

You can speak out:

Soquel Creek Water  District Board meeting: Tuesday, June 4, 7pm
