Desalination Along an Overcrowded Coast

March 17, 2004

Re "A Wave of Desalination Proposals," March 14: Tourism has long been a major job-producing industry in California. And our beaches are one of tourism's top attractions. If we obliterate ever more of our once-scenic coast with desalination facilities, we will have lost this state's golden shore. We cannot continue to accommodate exponential demand for growth, supply infinite additional water supplies -- in the coastal zone's finite space -- and expect California to maintain a desirable quality of life.
