Opinion: Free Recycled Water Costs Too Much

Pacifica's North Coast County Water District (NCCWD) will soon offer 100 gallons of recycled water, free for the taking – well, sort of free. Like most recycling programs, this program is a futile, feel-good gesture. If you have a couple of hours to spare, a half-ton truck, a tank, a pump, and a half-gallon of gas, you can get up to 36 cents' worth of water. In addition to the environmental damage that gas creates, this is a lousy use of your time. Instead, use the water on the golf course and playing fields, and turn the rest into drinking water. And while we’re banging on about the city and political correctness, where are the numbers for the beach parking meters and sewage treatment solar system?
