This was completely barren the 1st time I went by in 2004-2005 except for a few ranch houses that you can see if you look close.


Yes, BerryMex has expanded further west as well as south since these photos, having built a new reservoir to help support their expansion. Another desal unit is getting started as well to help fill the new reservoir and support their continued expansion.

Personally, I too wish it could all just stay as it was but I guess this is better than a bunch of new neighborhoods being built. They are also doing a fairly good job of maintaining the local roads out this way...

Yeah that's kind of how I see it too. The roads where in the best shape I've ever seen.
I hope Berrymex stops the spread of the ugly sprawl or at least slows it.
But there will be a need for workers that wasn't there before. I'm thinking Chapala will grow some. Hopefully it gets cleaned up a little.

This is what Chapala looks like as of this morning. Comparing with the pictures you posted there is some new expansion east and south. Not pictured is all of their continuing expansion west towards the beach including another reservoir currently underway. They are also laying the groundwork to install another desal unit that will feed that new reservoir...

I noticed mention of a desal plant over by "La Salina". Do you know if that is for BerryMex or is that a municipal project? Also I see a new power line in the photo.
Maybe power out to my place soon.
This is all happening way quicker that I thought it would.
I use to say San Quintin is Newport Beach 100 years ago. Now it's more like Newport 50 years ago. So 50 years of developement occured in 10 years.
I don't see it slowing down.

The desal plant project of CESPE by the Salina is for providing drinking water to the municipal water system here in the valley. That is apart from Berrymex's own plant...
