Attorney Jennifer Spaletta, who represents the NSJWCD, briefed its board of directors on the status of two bills calling for strict groundwater management.

    Boiling the water away from the salt using reverse osmosis should not be so expensive. Or is it not expensive at all if there wasn't so many regulations and special permits that cost a lot of money? Not to mention all of the environmentalist constantly filing lawsuits against those who just want to provide fresh water to water the crops, etc.

    So true, Ted. I wonder if you know anything about the feasibility of desalination? I know it is used around the world and maybe that could be the answer to our water problems? I know it's really expensive, but, really much more than building the twin tunnels?

    Lodi couldn't farm permanent crops before by getting water once ( maybe) every three years using surface water so we went to groundwater. Now that is being taken. The beginning of the end. We won't even have to move north for the water for farming. Oregon farmers are already making up the difference. I only feel concerned for our own local farming posterity. Squeeze until you make them cry. You just can't make the entire state a Garden of Eden no matter how hard you try.
