Pismo water supply

Pismo BeachJune 12, 2013 

This letter is in response to John Romanelli’s letter of May 26.

Mr. Romanelli says that the city of Pismo Beach has an ample water supply. Mr. Romanelli and his family must not have resided here during the droughts of the 1970s and 1990s, when you were not even offered a glass of water in restaurants, and the city restricted sewer and water connections due to inadequate water.

Regarding the interarterial connection to Price Canyon Road — this part of the project is in limbo, and does not have property rights to be constructed. And, if approved, it will not be constructed until the end of the project, in 2033?

Regarding the water treatment plant to reclaim water — I will let Mr. Romanelli be the first to hook this water supply to his home for his human consumption.

Romanelli thinks the nine-hole golf course is great, but how about traveling to another nine-hole course in Grover Beach?

Also, is there a demand for more rooms and a conference center? And there seems to be an abundance of empty retail spaces! All and all this development is a boon for the developer and will probably put the city in a negative budget position.
