Document Description
The project proposes to implement a seawater desalination plant producing about 50 million gallons per day (mgd) of potable water. The facility would intake raw seawater from the Pacific Ocean through the existing AES Huntington Beach Generating Station intake line, purify it utilizing reverse osmosis technology, discharge brine water through the existing AES outfall, and deliver potable product water to the regional water distribution system. Off-site components include a water transmission pipeline alignment extending into the City of Costa Mesa and booster pump station with an uncorporated portion of Orange County.
