HUNTINGTON BEACH – Resident support for a desalination facility in Huntington Beach is on the rise, according to a new survey that shows the number of people backing the project has gone up six percent since 2004. Poseidon Resources conducted a phone survey of 402 registered voters in the city that shows 71 percent of them are in favor of the Huntington Beach Seawater Desalination Facility, despite opponents to the project saying there are better options for clean water that would cost less.
“Desalination must be included in any discussion of future water sources for Orange County."
