Maybe I missed something real important when I was being educated, but this whole water transfer deal just ain't adding up.
If I'm reading things right, San Diego is going to secure a part of our water rights and the Imperial Irrigation District is going to spend at least $15 million to give it to them.
That just don't make horse sense. I do know this is very complicated, but the basic principle of it just seems screwy. Once San Diego gets its foot in our door, you can bet that their demand for our water will grow in the future. The courts will side with them, not the little guys of Imperial Valley. Remember Owens Valley!
When our water supply is limited, our growth and prosperity will be as well. Why do they want our water anyway? Dang, they got the whole Pacific Ocean over there. Why doesn't San Diego build desalinization plants like they have in the Middle East? Are they too ugly to look upon? Would they spoil the vistas?
