SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Bill Green has consistently represented the best interests of South Coast Water Board customers and he is running for re-election.
Seventy percent of those customers surveyed support a water desalination plant and Bill has provided leadership as a strong advocate.
A secure source of water is critical to Dana Point’s future. Currently Dana Point’s water supply comes from Northern California, the Colorado River and a local well.
The majority of our water supply would be at risk if Northern California experienced a major earthquake damaging our supply pipelines. Our seven-day water reserve is not sufficient to complete repairs before we would face a water shortage crisis. Additionally, local wells are depleted during an extended drought and even if available, the cost of replacement imported water would be extremely expensive.
We support a water desalination treatment plant as a prudent course of action and recommend the re-election of Bill Green to the South Coast Water Board.
