Five months after Ventura residents voted in favor of building a desalination plant, the Ventura City Council on Monday decided to spend about $175,000 for the first major study on the facility. In November, residents by a 55% margin favored an advisory measure calling for construction of a desalination plant instead of importing water from Northern California. Since the election, the City Council has hired a project manager, a desalination expert and a public relations firm for the project.
