Mother Nature and the environment minister of British Columbia are enough to make Jack B. Lindsey sweat. Lindsey is chairman of Sun Belt Water Inc., a Santa Barbara company formed eight months ago to bring water from rain-soaked British Columbia to the parched Central Coast. But when the Goleta Water District chose Sun Belt last week to ship water south by tanker, it was the beginning of the firm's troubles, not the end.

A Calabasas businessman Wednesday asked water officials in western Ventura County to reconsider importing water from Canada by tanker over a proposal to build a desalination plant in Ventura or Oxnard. Robert C. Byrd, president of Imodco Inc., said his company could bring in tankers of water from southern British Columbia for less than the cost of desalination, which is one of seven options under consideration to meet the western county's water quality and supply needs through 2010.
