Ocean Desalination in LA?

West Basin Municipal Water District is proposing a 20-60 million gallons per day ocean desal facility in El Segundo. They've already spent 18 years and ~$60 million studying the project, but we still have a chance to stop it!

On November 18th, we're holding a rally before West Basin's special hearing to vote on whether it will move forward with the $480+ million project (which YOU, the ratepayer, will be footing the bill for).

It's time to take action. Join us for our last chance to let West Basin know NOT IN OUR BAY!

This Project is a Boondoggle.

We don't need to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on an environmentally disastrous and unnecessary facility.

We can ensure an affordable, reliable water supply for all Angelenos without spending enormous amounts of ratepayer dollars, adding tens of thousands of tons of CO2 to the atmosphere, and building yet another industrial blight along the South Bay coast.
