IT IS IRONIC To Hear People Criticizing The Marin Municipal Water District For "Rushing" Toward Building A Desalination Plant.
Marin Independent Journal
District leaders have been weighing the costs and benefits of desalination for many years. In 2002, the board voted 3-2 to start exploring a desalination plant as part of its strategy to meet MMWD’s long-term water needs. Another irony is that the majority in that vote were the directors with the closest ties to Marin’s environmental community. One them was Jared Huffman, now our assemblyman. He pushed desalination as the district’s only viable source for new water.
“Desalination must be included in any discussion of future water sources for Orange County."
