Appeals launched against Huntington Beach desalination plant
09 Nov 10 by desalination
A public hearing by the California Coastal Commission is the likely result of appeals launched against the Huntington Beach Desalination plant, approved by the State Lands Commission on 29 October 2010.
The Orange County Register reports that a group of residents, two environmental groups and two California Coastal Commission officials have appealed against the US$ 350 million desalination project planned for Huntington Beach saying the city did not follow coastal standards in approving the project. The 189,000 m³/d seawater reverse-osmosis facility is proposed by Poseidon Resources.
The Coastal Commission is expected to consider the appeals against the facility at its meeting on 17 November 2010. The appeal was filed by Orange County Coastkeeper, the Surfrider Foundation, Residents for Responsible Desalination and Coastal Commission members Sara Wan and Ross Mirkarimi.
