Join Coastkeeper for a Town Hall meeting to prepare for the upcoming Regional Water Quality Control workshop on the proposed Poseidon desalination plant
A major decision regarding the future of the proposed Poseidon desalination plant is on the horizon; Educate yourself and encourage decision makers to do the right thing
Orange County Coastkeeper opposes the proposal to construct a giant, polluting desalination plant that will negatively affect local residents, the environment and marine life
Keynote speakers: Damon Nagami, Natural Resources Defense Council Environmental Attorney
Join us to defend our quiet neighborhoods and clean beaches from Poseidon’s unneeded, expensive and polluting proposal. Attend a Town Hall meeting to prepare for the upcoming Regional Water Quality Control Board workshop where residents will have a chance to tell board members what they think.
The Regional Water Quality Control Board will be holding a workshop about Poseidon on Friday, Dec. 6, specifically to take public comment on the proposed plant. The board is expected to then hold a hearing in early 2020. We want Huntington Beach residents to be prepared to speak out on the proposal to construct a giant, polluting desalination plant close to our neighborhoods and beaches. Orange County Coastkeeper opposes this development because we don’t need the water and it will harm our marine environment, will leave local ratepayers holding the bag, and bring noise and air pollution to our community.
Ray Hiemstra, Orange County Coastkeeper Associate Director of Programs: “Come to this Town Hall meeting to learn how to make your voice heard at the upcoming Regional Water Quality Control Board workshop on the Poseidon Huntington Beach desalination plant. The regional board needs to see and hear the opposition to Poseidon.”
WHERE: John H. Eader Elementary (9291 Banning Ave., Huntington Beach, CA, 92646)
WHEN: Tuesday, October 15th, at 7:00 p.m.
