When I scan my Inbox each day, I single out emails from Food & Water Watch because they keep me up-to-date on back-room shenanigans that affect relevant issues that are of concern to me... like the food I buy in the grocery store! And when they ask me to do something, I do it.

Save Water and Money

There are many reasons to support conservation instead of desalination. A desalination facility is costly and energy intensive. Second, desalination of ocean water requires enormous amounts of electricity, drives up water rates even higher, and would increase Marin County’s carbon footprint. Furthermore, discharge from the facility could negatively impact the San Francisco Bay.

In response to this $100 million boondoggle, citizens are working together by stepping up water efficiency measures and preventing water waste before pursuing desalination.
