Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
An additional advantage to irrigating from desalinized water is that it would stop accumulation of trace elements such as selenium in agricultural soil from ground water. The percentage increased cost estimated above is low, because it is based on the total California agricultural production, while the proposed system only serves the San Joaquin Valley and adjacent areas.
