Abstract (Document Summary)

I heard the story of the monkey when I called Norm Stow, who manages Hamilton Cove on Santa Catalina Island.

This will be the first such plant on the West Coast, they say, and it will supply almost a third of the island's water.

About a third of the residents cross the Catalina Channel in their own boats, tie up to one of the Hamilton Cove moorings and then come ashore in their dinghies. There is an 18-hole golf course with a waterfall on a stream, a pond full of Technicolor fish and grass cropped as close as velour.
