Re: “UCSC, Listen to the Community” (Letters, 2/17): It is nice to hear someone point out the oblivious.
Right as Santa Cruz runs head first into another summer of water rationing, the city on the hill is happy to politically push for high-rise housing within the limits of the city. Regardless of the current, pre-new-hospital sewer hook-up moratorium, the rest of the county suffers. Most don’t know the offal from as far as La Selva Beach gets pumped to SC’s plant then out off the coast of Delaware Ave to circulate with the long shore drift into the Bay. It seems that Santa Cruz can build high-rises with impunity since they own the treatment plant and who cares about having enough water in the summer as long as the college can pack in more students. True litigation will be the only way to slow the trend.
