Document Description
Construction and operation of a 50 million gallons per day seawater desalination facility that would provide potable drinking water for use by residents and businesses of Orange County. The project includes a 10,120 sq. ft. administration building, a 38,090 sq. ft. reverse osmosis building, a 36,305 sq. ft. product water storage tank, and miscellaneous accessory structures on an 11 acre lease area. The proposed improvements include up to ten miles of water transmission lines, which are in Huntington Beach and Costa Mesa, and one mile of which will be within the Coastal Zone, to connect to an existing regional transmission system in Costa Mesa and two off-site pump stations, one in unincorporated Orange County and one in the City of Irvine. The project also includes site remediation, and perimeter landscaping and fencing along Newland Street and Edison Avenue. The desalination facility would withdraw source water from the existing permitted AES Huntington Beach Generating Station's (HBGS) discharge pipeline, purify it utilizing reverse osmosis technology, and discharge concentrated seawater back to the existing HBGS's outfall for dilution with the remaining screened condenser cooling water, which then discharges back into the ocean. The project's product water will be delivered to the distribution system and will be available on a wholesale basis.
