County representatives ask Coastal Commission to approve ‘critically needed’ Poseidon project in Huntington Beach.
The state legislators representing Orange County unanimously asked a state water agency to approve Poseidon Water’s permit to build a desalination facility in Huntington Beach, according to a statement by Poseidon Water. The Thursday letter to Coastal Commission Chairwoman Mary Shallenberger stated that “the Huntington Beach Desalination Plant is a critically needed and environmentally responsible solution to the county’s water supply needs. We urge your immediate approval.”
“Desalination must be included in any discussion of future water sources for Orange County."
