It will be costly to get the salt out or truck it in. Water and utility bills will become outrageous and there will be a mass exodus from the sunshine state. Homes and businesses will sit unsold and will be handed back to banks or simply abandoned because extreme water conservation will become the norm or water bills will be so outrageous that the average american family cannot afford to stay in Cali.
