Holy cow, I went on vacation and returned to a Sunday paper featuring a Brawley City Council action that boggles the mind!
To those of you who remember a cartoon called "Smokey Stover," do you recall those contraptions wherein a mouse eats some cheese that tips a spoon, that flings a nut, that hits a gong, etc, etc. These ideas are back in style.
Is this the same City Council who fought a new water plant with room for growth? Looks like a complete flip-flop from here. A desalinization proposal for Brawley, ooookay … it is to be built close to Indio, ties into Mecca, and empties salty waste into the Salton Sea.
The recovered wastewater will go to the metropolitan areas that certainly need the water more than our dry, arid, desert lands that are going to give the rest of our water to San Diego anyway so that certain people will profit from not farming and creating jobs.
