Jenna, you left out the part that the City does not have the special sand that has to come from the mid-west to get this plant going. Unfortunately, there is a shortage of this sand and there is only one manufacturer.

I believe they're going to use coconut shells, and yes it has to be shipped in. Curry said they'll probably need two shipments per year. Staffers have budgeted $400,000 annually for the maintenance and operation of the GAC (including the cost those coconuts!)
