Desalination plants may be needed for California to get enough water

Editor: I’ve just read with interest your article (‘California visit an eye-opener’) published in The Times on July 29 and republished in the New Westminster  NewsLeader.

It’s never made sense to me why a coastal state so heavily water-dependent as California has never — at least to my knowledge — resorted to constructing desalination plants. Surely someone must have considered the idea.
