Like most counties, San Joaquin County typically toots its horn about its agriculture industry and what the county has to offer when it constructs its exhibit at the California State Fair.

But this year, the county went a step further.

    If So-Cal wants water so bad, let them make their own, the idea of taking salt water from the ocean is not new. The middle east countries have been doing this for many years. So-Cal has the money to build and maintain desalination plants to provide the people of LA and the surrounding area with all the fresh drinking water they can use. San Louis Obispo along the Oceanside Ca. have plants up and running at the present time. Money, of course, lots of it, however the cost of building dams, that are only as good as the water behind them and rely on good water years along with ample snow pack. With desalination, Nor-Cal water will not be touched and the Delta left alone.

    It's all supply and demand. If our valley farmers water is in short supply it will cost more & more. We can not afford to allow POLITICIANS to steal OUR Nor-Cal water for So-Cal residents.
