The San Diego Union Tribune’s editorial board is endorsing the City of San Diego’s proposed, four year water rate increase. The editorial cites the expense of developing new water resources, like the Carlsbad Desalination Plant and the city’s plan to purify wastewater to drinking water standards, and states, “We hope the City Council figures out that there are no easy, cheap solutions when it comes to securing reliable water supplies in 21st century California.”
