Water is one of our most precious resources. San Diego is at the end of 2 very long pipelines that supply 80% of our clean water: the Bay Delta Project and Colorado River Aquaduct. Both of these cross the San Andreas Fault which is due for another shake.
After 10 years we have approved a desalination plant in Carlsbad that will supply 10% of our water needs. What are the costs? what about conservation, and purple pipe re-use?
We have 2 local experts to educate us and take your Q & A:
