No mention of West Marin in here though. And lots of alternative ideas like shipping water by train. "The Marin Municipal Water District is shelving plans to rent two desalination plants to avoid the potential depletion of water supplies by next summer and will instead focus efforts on a pipeline across San Francisco Bay.

Aside from the desal project’s estimated price of $30 million to $37 million, the two temporary plants the district found would only be able to generate a quarter of its daily water needs if reservoirs go dry, said Ben Horenstein, the district’s general manager.

“It isn’t too attractive if that’s your only option,” Horenstein said.

By comparison, the proposed 5- to 6-mile pipeline across the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge could carry the 10 million to 15 million gallons a day the district says would be needed for vital indoor water uses."
