STOP Cal Am's FLAWED desalination project!

Cal Am is moving forward to build its FLAWED slant-well desalination plant in the City of Marina. Key permit applications are fast approaching!

Tell decision-makers to STOP THIS ENVIRONMENTALLY HARMFUL, ILLEGAL, AND COSTLY PROJECT!

A FASTER AND MUCH MORE AFFORDABLE WATER SUPPLY ALTERNATIVE EXISTS!

PROBLEMS WITH CAL AM'S DESAL PLANT

  • Has no legal water rights to Marina's water
  • Steals from Marina's groundwater to supply the Monterey Peninsula and benefit Cal Am and its shareholders
  • Increases seawater intrusion into one of Monterey County's critically over-drafted basins
  • Costs far more than other options

RECYCLED WATER FROM THE MONTEREY ONE WATER'S EXPANSION IS A SUPERIOR ALTERNATIVE

  • Can be brought online faster than Cal Am
  • Can remove the Cease-and-Desist Order imposed by the State Water Board and prevent rationing for the Peninsula
  • Water would cost less than a third that of Cal Am's desal
  • Is a public non-profit project unlike Cal Am's for-profit desal

ASK OUR LEADERS AND DECISION MAKERS TO ...

  • Support the Monterey One Water recycled water expansion
  • Convene a public workshop to hear community input
  • Explore a PUBLICLY-OWNED regional desalination project that benefits ALL Monterey Bay communities

We, the people of the Monterey Peninsula, the City of Marina, and the Ord communities, ask our officials and decision makers to do the right thing!

Don't allow private interests and profits to block the public interest!

Signing this petition will send your message to over 30 elected officials.
