Poseidon Water Vice President Scott Maloni Responds to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s Executive Order
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.-- Poseidon Water Vice President Scott Maloni today issued a statement in response to Governor Gavin Newsom’s executive order.
“This week, California Governor Gavin Newsom delivered an executive order to develop a strategy for a climate-resilient water system. We couldn’t agree more and the implementation of seawater desalination in California is a great first step,” said Scott Maloni, vice president, Poseidon Water. “Many of California’s existing challenges, including severely depleted groundwater aquifers and uncertain water supplies, stem from the need for a new, reliable and sustainable water resource. Seawater desalination is a proven technology that is the only
truly climate resilient, new supply of water. Governor Newsom calls on the state to incorporate successful approaches from other countries, like Israel, and to invest in innovative technologies. Desalination has been adopted by over 120 countries, with places like Israel and United Arab Emirates relying on it for the majority of their potable water. The successful three-year operation of the Carlsbad desalination plant is proof that California is ready for desalination. The Huntington Beach Desalination Project will further the technology’s place as part of Southern California’s climate-resilient water strategy, ensuring water security for generations to come.”
