I’ve been too busy to write anything lately.. but I had to get this thought out there before I forgot it..
There is talk here of building a Desalinization Plant to give us water to drink… there are some issues with it.. environmental.. and the high cost… but.. my problem is more basic.
The county has turned down a few proposals to re-claim water, clean it.. and re-use it.. but the opponents call that “toilet to tap” .. which isn’t true.. but does it’s damage..
My problem?? well.. Those same people that don’t want the reclamation projects are for desalinization.
Why doesn’t that make sense?? Well that not-clean-enough-for-me water is sent to the ocean.. where the desalinization plant will suck it up and take the salt out.. and clean out any impurities..
So.. it just adds one extra step to putting the water into the tap.. if we just cleaned the damn water in the first place we’d have plenty… because no matter how much we talk about not having enough water.. people will still run their water for 5 minutes while they brush their teeth…
