Davenport

Davenport is on the verge of running out of water.   At issue is who should pay for repairs to the main water pipeline that serves the small community north of Santa Cruz: the cement plant that owns the town's water infrastructure or residents.

For more than a century a cement plant defined the small, coastal community of Davenport. In fact, the town just north of Santa Cruz was built to house its workers. Now seven years after the plant shutdown, residents are again looking to the plant to define their town.
