As many of you know, I, along with the other mayoral candidates, was on WNZF radio on Friday hosted by Patrick Kelly..The subject of desalination and the location of a plant came up.. I am opposed to this project being located any place in Palm Coast. But one of my opponents, said he "referred the plant be in Hargrove Grade area" ..Now folks, let's talk about that... First , the location is about 8 miles from the ocean requiring at least 8 miles of pipe to bring the salt water to and back from the plant.. This is not a "garden size " pipe, but one that would be at least 10 feet in diameter..They , then would need to bury this pipe, across US1, through parts of "B" or Matanzas sections, through Belle Terre, under I-95, across Old Kings Road, the Citys new golf course, across the intracoastal waterway, A1A, and then the Hammock... This will make Boston's "BIG DIG" look like a sandbox project. Never in 100 years, would the residents of Palm Coast stand for this..
