I see how passionate my father is about changing the Desalination project into something that is better for the environment and makes use of what we already have and I wanted to help him tell this story.

Father and Son team, Scott McGilvray of WaterAware and Chris McGilvray of Six Finger Films, created Water for Santa Cruz in effort to bring attention to the $130 Million desalination project that has been proposed for the Santa Cruz area. It brings together many experts on the area’s water supply and discusses various alternatives to desalination project that are less financially taxing and more friendly to the environment.

“My family lives in Santa Cruz and I love the beauty of the area.” says Chris McGilvray. “I see how passionate my father is about changing the Desalination project into something that is better for the environment and makes use of what we already have and I wanted to help him tell this story. I hope we raised even more awareness in the community about the danger of the desalination plant and to the alternatives.”

Multiple experts weigh in on the matter during the film including Rick Longinotti and Paul Gratz co-founders of Santa Cruz DeSal Alternatives, James Bentley, a retired Water Plant & Production Superintendent for the city of Santa Cruz and Peter Hoss, principle of Fall Creek Engineering, a reclaimed water expert.
