Carlsbad desalination agreement “could be signed in June”

A water-purchase contract for the Carlsbad seawater desalination project in California, USA, could be ready for public scrutiny by April 2012, with possible approval by the client San Diego County Water Authority in June.

Scott Maloni, for developers Poseidon Resources Corp, told D&WR on 2 January 2012 that “a June 2012 execution date is our best understanding of the schedule based on the input we have received from the CWA staff”.
