Fukishima aside, we don't spend money on useful things here in Calif., we spend money on things like high speed trains to nowhere.

If California DOES somehow desalinate enough water for ag use, 90% of the nations' veggies, fruit, nuts, rice, milk, wine and cheese at YOUR local store is going to be absolutely "radiant"!

Start what? Santa Barbara has been desalinizing for a couple decades now.

Desalination is hugely expensive.

And California doesn't exactly have a whole lot of cash to throw around.

I really wonder how they would ever accomplish this.

What they do have, however is very stringent wastewater treatment standards, ie: the effluent from wastewater treatment plants has to be pretty much as good as drinking water (probs better than the drinking water in some communities). Ten years ago (when I was in the water treatment biz) under Title 22 the effluent from sewage treatment plants had to be less than 2.2 mg/L total coliform. That's quite pristine for wastewater. At the time it was thought that they would tighten that standard even more.

So having said this, I find it more reasonable to think they will use wastewater effluent to combat drought....if they aren't already.

Nothing wrong with desalinating. It's just rather expensive.

Too expensive for agriculture, but not most homes.

AZ one day will use desalinated water from the Sea of Cortez.

The EPA says "no" to desalizanation because it impacts the ocean
