Re the July 5 Other Views column Desalinization could solve our water problems: Desalinization is one of the most expensive ways to obtain fresh water. Has the proponent looked out the window lately? There seems to be an abundant water supply coming from heaven. How about using some of it? It’s free.
How about giving a tax incentive to people who go to a cistern to supplement their water system? Rain water is great for showers, toilets, laundry and the great water waster, broken lawn sprinklers.
