I wish to give my strongest support to the building of the desalination plant mentioned in your pages recently.

For many years I have thought such a facility very necessary.

We are now in a very dry period and these occur frequently.

We have seen parched areas of agricultural land.

New housing development makes new demands on an already stretched water supply.

I don’t think that we can continue to rely on rivers as the sole sources of water for people and land.

The alarming progression of global warming makes this an urgent matter.
