Really, removing salt....to much money.

Why hasn't this been discussed.....recycle our effluent? They already do this type of purification, the technology is already in place, and its quite cheap.

City of San Jose waste processing center dumps its treated water into the San Francisco Bay, the Alviso estuary. The water that the plant was processing was:
fit for human consumption
was so clean that it was affecting the fish that were use to the dirty delta and San Francisco Bay water.

But guess nobody wants to drink there purified urine and feces. To gross for many but is done already.

The problem with some water is the metals that can still be there in the treated water, however the San Jose plant beat this problem.

That's the way to go really.

John
Best of health to your wife.

Sorry to jump into this so late, but here in Wyoming we could make all the power cal needs if Obama would back off coal. And we have gas wells that are drilled and ready to go, but there all the pipe lines that carry the gas are full.

B-2,
It is not only Obama but his buddy the EPA. Not to make this a political thread now but these are real concerns that affect all of us. Wyoming has the cleanest coal and California has some of the best resources to remedy these issues. Between all the environmentalist, businesses and residents, each wanting a different part, it's hard to get anything done.

I didn't even think about this, but on a large enough scale is that doable? Money?

Thanks for the well wishes...with all the strain....wife sick, take care of kids...making sure business is ok.....it gets overwhelming . My wife's lung specialist was calling staff to make sure I was alright. She didn't want to be incubated because of her grandfather never made it back, so that day was a big fight. Thank god for true friends, family, an ex-wife, and god.

Been at her side and bored so came on here for an escape. Always like how other people try to solve CA water problems. Just like a drunk who won't help themselves, Ca needs to solve their own problems.

The problem is the desire, money and self pride gets in the way.

Thanks for the well wishes
John

Fat chance on enforcing a water-allotment contract during a drought emergency.
