Solution for water shortage

Dear Editor:A private company is going to build a $320 million desalination plant along the coast of northern San Diego County. It was approved May 13 by the San Diego Regional Water Quality Control Board. The plan could provide more than 18 billion gallons of water by the year 2012. This project has been planned for a decade. The plant will be built next to the power plant in Carlsbad. Let's hope we could follow suit for our area. This would end the water shortage and provide more jobs. - Mike Sandoval, Downey
