Well, that's not going to happen! It takes years to build dams, etc. and El Ninio events are barely worth building dams that are going to stand empty about 9 years out of 10.

We need to build the desalination plants. They are WAY WAY cheaper than building dams and aqueducts. They are tiny: You can't even see the Carlsbad plant and we drive by it on I5 every day.


I have been for desalinization plants for years, but I see that our state government isn't on board with that, or even municipal/county governments. They don't seem to want to spend the money. Of course now, they are finding out what that kind of short-sightedness is bring them. Penny-wise and pound-foolish. Even though the desal plants are more quickly built and cheaper, It still won't capture the extra water brought from the ElNino.
