Monterey County elected officials to debate a change in desal law (June/2022)


Math? 21ka/640a=32.8125 sq. miles new coastside estuarine ESHA!

Here’s where sea levels are rising fastest in California.

(Watch & Listen to Dr. Mount , standing in the Delta in 2014 on VICE Channel @ 5:41 @ , , , , , , , , , , , etc

 telling us what astoundingly enormous statewide and beyond water, food, and resource and environmental waste even 1 foot of SLR will wreak in the Delta, and, most importantly for us here in the Monterey Bay in our local coastal ground water commons near, at, or already below sea level here now! … @ …) ?

  (... Who is Dr. John Englander? …)

 and then listen,watch, and learn how that huge deep canyon in our bay was created & much more?)


… Locally  here:

Sustainability, Rapid “SLR”, “ASR” or “DPR” H2O, #NatureBasedSolutions, Our $5 billion+yr food production (10% of Cali’s $50 billion of total US $138 billion)?

Did we need either Cal Am or it’s coast front illegal slant welled desal plant in 2011 @ (2010) then?

… or now, any other/better alternatives, #nbs/nature based like mine run down in my comment right below and @ is or not? 

(View April 19, 2016 “First” (of eventually 8 through today) SWRCB Monterey Bay Conservancy Intervention Requests (for cause!) @ 11:21 … April 29, 2016 LinkedIn article & Distributed documents in my hand...)

Dear Coastal Commission, Governor Newsom, SWRCB, DWR, Monterey and Santa Cruz County Supervisors and City of Santa Cruz, et al…

The Monterey Bay Conservancy demands, for now the eighth time since the first on April 19, 2016 (@ @11:21) immediate SWRCB Emergency  “Intervention” and takeover of all Monterey Bay Regional water management, sustainability planning and projects, and all other related control under direction of Governor Newsom’s Office.

Additionally, due to the recent shockingly high Monterey (and San Francisco ) Bay SLR Projections and the quickly approaching completed DPR/Direct Potable Reuse regs and, as I well over 2 and one half years ago advised the CCC @ 12:12),

All coastside “Pure Water” recycling “ASR/IPR” projects should now be immediately stopped and held in abeyance until, due to DPR H2O recycled H20 changeover, which does not have to be injected and mixed in our coastal aquifers and can be used directly, all “ASR/IPR”injection will be abandoned and tens of millions of dollars will not imprudently be ill spent on useless pipelines and other unneeded new infrastructure to no where when these dollars can be repurposed to cleaning and recycling more DPR instead !? …

Common sense?

… particularly when 33000 acre feet of DPR H2O will be yearly available w/o any more “ASR/IPR” injection from the repurposed from Ag to Monterey Bay regional urban water needs of all our other humans and their activities and businesses here and best sustain and protect our $5 billion yearly food production here and so much more run down @

Here’s Monterey Bay Conservancy’s 30 year old plus #NatureBasedSolution (and 100% unconsidered and DirectPotableReuse/”DPR” Recycled H2O) and best 33,000 acre feet/year new no shovel/build back better-Farmlands to wetlands infrastructure Monterey Bay Regional Urban Water Supply Alternative to best address Sea Level Rise, preserve and sustain us and our $5 billion year farm/food production, 90% water user …

Dear Chairman Esquivel & Ms. Bochco, et al @ SWRCB & California Coastal Commission,

(Please, for the now 8th time since 2016)…

INTERVENE NOW IN MONTEREY BAY @ @ 11: 21 , 4/19/2016 !!!

@It's past time for the State Water Resources Control Board to take control of our now predominantly below sea level Monterey Bay ground water commons

Does SqCWD have any water rights to do anything? (2005)

Query I: Our future water supply: Our most important “Community” decision?

Query II: Will it be Desal, “ASR” (aquifer storage recovery with injection and later extraction)...

or 33000 a/ft/yr new Monterey Bay regional “DPR” (direct potable reuse) urban recycled H20 w/o any injection with 63000 a/ft/yr PERMANENT w/o EXTRACTION IN PERPETUITY passive strategic recharge through/and conservation (@ 3 afyr per acre) of #NatureBasedSolution ESHA 21000 acres of “farmlands back to wetlands”, the Monterey Bay Estuarine National Monument , like at Zmudowski Beach at 1992 43 acre Pilot Project Willoughby Ranch? 

@ (a fb page)


“DPR vs “ASR”: All recycled water is not the same ?

Please use your common sense and simple logic to understand why?

Why?: The one foot of SLR will push into our and all coastside aquifers that are at or below sea level and force sea water and other pollutants into our still pristine for the most part local aquifers and pollute them too.

My 30+ year old ignored plan, the NATURE BASED SOLUTION/#nbs 21000 acre “Monterey Bay Estuarine National Monument”, including the repurposed to urban from ag 33000 acre feet/year of "DPR-Direct Potable Reuse" recycled water from the already but upgraded extant and online built in 1998 for $75 million Castroville Reclamation Plant, which also includes 63000 acre feet per year and then EVERY FOLLOWING YEAR IN PERPETUITY of permanent and not later extracted both strategically located and #nbs and passive Monterey Bay regional groundwater CONSERVATION and PERMANENT AQUIFER RECHARGE and 21000 NEW ACRES of new ”FARMLANDS BACK TO WETLANDS” (43 acre since 1995 Pilot Project @ Zmudowski Beach run down @ , a fb page, will solve all and best both sustain and preserve or increase our current $5 billion year (10% of Cali's total $50 billion year farm production of USA's total $136 billion!) and many other benefits for us here IN THE BIGGEST DROUGHT/FOOD/AIR/SAFETY/ALLLABSMATTER.INFO etc AND ALREADY SO MANY OTHER EMERGENCIES IN HUMAN HISTORY?, …

…for only a one time $2.1 billion build back better (one billion each State and Federal) infrastructure investment which will make us here in “our” (... fyi, one of my two “pronouns”) Monterey Bay Region where “we” all live (... fyi II, the second of my two “pronouns”)

 "The local coastside and already approved "ASR-Aquifer Storage Recovery" projects Pure Water Monterey and Soquel (AND San Diego, etc.), where "cleaned" local waste and other water is deeply and very expensively injected into our already at, near, or below sea level coastside aquifers for only temporary mixing, storage, and then later use and extraction, cannot possibly work when Sea Level Rise (SLR) is projected to be at least 1 foot and maybe much more by 2050!

I have a dream

In 1970 at 21 years of age Elaine and I eloped to Mazatlan from Stanford and then moved to our present mountain home here in the absolute corner of Aptos Rancho in 1974, where we have been ever since. We now include our children Alisha 39, her husband Clay, Dakota 13, Hudson 10, and our son Jake 36, all Monterey Bay natives.

I am very concerned about our Monterey Bay regional water and numerous other unaddressed Federal issues here.

I have unsuccessfully been trying for well over 20 years to meet with my Congressman about our regional 20th District wide groundwater commons overdraft seawater intrusion tragedy  , disaster, and food security concern, and solutions and other pressing issues like immediate DACA and other immigration/safety legislation , Expansion of UCSC to Watsonville, NDAA,  EMP-CME , Oroville possible Golden Gate dams issues, twin tunnels, Monterey Bay Estuarine National Monument (... partial 2018 20th District Congressional Ballot Statement v. Mr. Panetta- read rest @ and read June 2022 Ballot Statememt @

That's why I am running for Congress to get us the $2.1 billion to fund this project with an immediate following emergency executive order from our Governor immediately authorizing and implementing my project for us.
