Pismo is concerned about water

Susan Testa - Pismo Beach

We are currently going door to door with an important petition to put an initiative on the November ballot. For more information, please go to savepricecanyon.com. If you are a registered Pismo Beach voter and we haven’t come to your door, email us at savepricecanyon@gmail.com, notify us on Facebook, or call command central/Sheila at 773-4035, and we will come to your home so you may sign our petition to put the initiative on the November ballot. This initiative will put the approval of massive development in the Price Canyon area into the hands of the citizens. The Southern California developer has been repeatedly sending out misleading push calls/surveys to gain support. Don’t fall for their elaborate and expensive campaign; we don’t have millions of dollars to spend on expensive PR firms like the developers do, but we all understand the water issues and the value of stopping unmitigated traffic.

Thank goodness that people are paying attention. The common theme as we go door to door is the valid concern over water. We just found out that not only won’t we receive our state allocated water, we also won’t be able to get the water we had stored in the San Luis reservoir. If we pump our full allocation of groundwater, we risk ruining a water basin that has previously shown signs of salt water intrusion. The city needs to start considering these grave water issues when approving large developments.
