Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board Workshop
December 6, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Who: The Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board is holding a public hearing on Friday, Dec. 6, at 8 a.m. to hear comments on Poseidon’s proposed desalination plant.
What: We need you to attend this hearing to send the Regional Board a strong message that residents do not want Poseidon’s costly, unneeded and environmentally destructive desal plant in our backyard. A permit for this Huntington Beach project should NOT be approved if it uses surface intakes that will kill marine life and produce toxic brine and noise that will pollute our ocean and nearby community.
Why: Poseidon still needs a permit from the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board to get the green light for their expensive and polluting Huntington Beach desalination project. The board will soon be releasing their draft permit and determination of compliance with the statewide desalination policy. This will lay out what Poseidon must do in order for the board to approve the desal plant.
THIS IS OUR BEST CHANCE to tell the Regional Board what we think of Poseidon’s proposal. There is no one who can speak up for your community better than you can.
When: Friday, Dec. 6, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: Huntington Beach City Hall, 2000 Main Street, Huntington Beach, CA 92648
