Title: Alternatives to Desal Almar Neighbors Block Party
START DATE: Saturday August 17
TIME: 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Location Details:
328 Oxford Way, Santa Cruz
Event Type: Party/Street Party
Come meet your neighbors, have a cookie, and find out more about the desalination plant proposed to be built here on the West Side of Santa Cruz, with pumping station sites along West Cliff Drive.

Fun facts:

*Once the proposed desalination plant is online, Westside residents will be drinking the desalinated water while the fresh water we drink today will be pumped to Soquel.

*The desalination plant project is estimated to cost at least $130 to $300 million to build with no mention of the cost required to maintain.

*Santa Cruz county residents will pay for this increased cost of water with higher water bills and higher taxes. We will also pay with increased air and noise pollution.

*Many local and national experts think there are viable, less expensive and more environmentally safe alternatives to increase our water supply.

Join us at our home on August 17.

Bring a chair if you want to sit.

Cookies will be provided.

Rick Longinotti will be joining us from DesalAlternatives.org to talk about the project.
