The Cambria Community Services District wants to do tests to find out if it can get enough seawater from under-beach wells south of the mouth of Santa Rosa Creek, above, to supply a proposed desalination plant. Testing would involve drilling up to 10 test holes with a diameter of 4 to 6 inches in the beach above the high-tide line and away from the creek. Up to three of those holes would be made into test wells. District directors are expected to discuss today an environmental review that says the testing would have no significant effect on the environment. The photo was taken in October 2006.
