The California State Lands Commission today voted to approve Poseidon Water’s proposed Huntington Beach Desalination Project, planned to provide 50 million gallons of drinking water per day, enough to sustain 400,000 Orange County residents.
“We are grateful for the thoughtful deliberations by the members of the California State Lands Commission and for approving our proposed environmental enhancements to the Huntington Beach Desalination Project,” said Scott Maloni, Poseidon Water Vice-President. “Today’s action is an important step towards addressing California’s need for a reliable source of clean water that can withstand the very real threat of climate change. Once built, Huntington Beach will be the most technologically advanced, energy efficient and environmentally sound seawater desalination plant in the world.”
Prior to construction, the proposed facility requires approval from the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board and the California Coastal Commission, which will consider the project in the first-half of 2018.
