Many Southern Californians expressed little sympathy for drought-weary Santa Barbara as water rates tripled, lawns turned brown and vegetation withered and died. Santa Barbara deserved its fate, critics of the city's water policy said. Residents had the chance to obtain an additional water supply in 1979, but rejected it when they voted against tying into the State Water Project, partly to control growth.

The state Water Resources Control Board gave a cool reception to a request by Santa Barbara County that it pay most of the cost of cleaning up an airport where leaky tanks polluted underground water. The county's public works director, Marlene Demery, asked the board for an outright grant of $292,326 to cover most of the estimated $350,000 needed to clean up aquifers under an airport for private planes at Santa Ynez, 20 miles northwest of Santa Barbara.
