Redondo Beach residents who are gearing up for this weekend's storm can pick up sand bags at the City Yard, according to a post on the city's website.

The Redondo Beach Public Works Department will be providing sand, bags and a scoop at the city yard, which is located across the street from 545 N. Gertruda Ave. in South Redondo Beach.

It would be cool if we could get rid of the sand bags and start designing a system to collect the rainwater. The AES Power Plant site seems like the perfect low lying property to put in a cistern, collect storm water, and filter it (preferably with a renewable energy source). We should be looking at storm water reuse/rainwater harvesting not desalination. In addition to capturing precious storm water, this approach also reduces the amount of pollution flowing into the Pacific Ocean. Everyone is tired of getting the flu, skin rashes, etc., when they paddle out or go for a swim in the ocean? When it rains, our storm water management system equates to a giant toilet flush. We can greatly reduce the amount of trash and bacteria, floating around in the ocean and along our shoreline. The West Basin Municipal Water District (as well as other government entities charged with water sourcing, pollution control, and storm water management) should work together and get rid of the Sea Lab Desalination Experiment and evolve into cutting edge storm water recapturing model.

Fred, I agree something has to be done on this complex issue.
