In his piece, “The Real Groundwater Recovery Plant” (Jan. 10-23), Councilman Derek Reeve does a disservice by playing with the numbers, again. Councilman Larry Kramer had repeated the Utilities Department’s report that currently, in 2014, the cost of water from the Metropolitan Water District and from the Groundwater Recovery Plant are about the same. Reeve disputed that statement by quoting 2012 data. Reeve, as council member, has been receiving reports showing that the all-in costs of the recovery plant have been falling since 2011.
