While you are correct about the Oprah's hedges, it has nothing to do with Santa Barbara water rates. Oprah house is in Montecito and Montecito's problem.
On Cost Creep Lurks Over Desal Plant

You already drink poopy water. Bear, poop, dear poop, and fish poop. Sometime dead bodies have been in your water. If you are drinking state water it is water that has been pooped in in Sacramento, Redding, and Los Banos, to name a few. Colorado River water comes via Las Vegas, so it is sucker's poop water.
Recycle the waste water via reverse osmosis, pump it up to Jameson, mix with the bear and deer and fish poop, and it will be ready to go.

If you inject recycled water into the groundwater basin, how do you get all the private wells to pay for it when they pump the water out? Better plan would be to pump the water up to Jameson, and then use the existing water distribution system deliver the water to customers.

Oh, I do love the thought of eminent domain on the Miramar site! Let's face it, it is the best site for a desal plant in Montecito, it is on the ocean! I get the feeling Montecito thinks the best site for a Montecito deal plant is in Summerland or Carpinteria. Out of sight, out of mind, and won't bother us with pesky noises or smells.

Sam, Suggest you read "Empty Mansions." There are indeed Clark family heirs, descendants from WA Clark first marriage. Probably not paid, since the estate has not been settled in NY. Probably expected to donate big bucks to help the thing along.
On Bellosguardo Foundation Named

Most Doctors are not union, some Rn"s are. Soon, Cottage will have a hard time filling openings. Why more to SB with a couple of hundred thousand of dollars of education debt, where the average house nears 1 million? Santa Barbara will always have waiters, cook and sale people, as long as UCSB and SBCC are open.
Md's and RN's? Probably not.

Union tool. How friendly. It was a serious question. I hope for your sake the big one or the next wildfire doesn't strike at midnight or when the 101 jammed with traffic from all the little people tyring to get to their pesky, union job.

If Santa Barbara is for the wealthy, and only those who can afford to live there, where are the people who provide essential services going to live? You know, doctors, nurses, police and fire, dentist and trash collectors. Do you want to have to drive to LA for all that?

The best and perhaps cheapest solution is indirect potable reuse. Take sewage, clean with reverse osmosis , and then pump up to Jameson, where it will be aged and blended with the water there, and then pumped back down for use. It is easier to remove the "stuff" from sewage than the salt from the ocean.
