Document Description
NOTE: Review Per Lead Agency for recirculation of Only Section 4.10. Please be advised that the City of Huntington Beach has determined to recirculate Section 4.10 (Ocean Water Quality and Marine Biological Resources) of the Draft Subsequent Environmental Impact Report for the Seawater Desalination Project at Huntington Beach. The recirculation period for public comment for Section 4.10 (Ocean Water Quality and Marine Biological Resources) commences Thursday 17, 2010 and ends Monday August 2, 2010. Comments that relate to all other sections or portions of the Draft Subsequent Environmental Impact Report must still be received during the initial public review and comment period (May 6 through June 21, 2010). There is no new or revised information in the recirculated section 4.10 of the Draft SEIR. All electronic versions of the SIER that were previously released for public review and comment included all of the pages of Section 4.10. If an agency has already provided written comments on Section 4.10 during the initial circulation period for the Draft SEIR (May 6, until June 21, 2010), those comments will be evaluated and a response provided in accordance with CEQA Guidelines section 15088. There is no need to provide further written comments. Because of the printing error described above, the City is recirculating only Section 4.10 of the SEIR. The City is requesting that reviewers Limit their Comments to Section 4.10. The project, proposed by Poseidon Resource Corporation, consists of the construction and operation of a 50 million gallon per day seawater desalination facility within the City of Huntington Beach. The facility would consist of seawater intake, pretreatment facilities, a seawater desalination plant utilizing reverse osmosis technology, post-treatment facilities, product water storage, pump stations, chemical storage tanks, electrical substation, and product water transmission pipeline options in the cities of Huntington Beach, Westminster, Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, Irvine and Newport Beach, and Costa Mesa. The facility would utilize existing AES Huntington Beach Generating Station (HBGS) seawater intake and outfall pipelines for its operations. The proposed desalination facility is located on a 13 acre site comprised of a portion of the HBGS facility located at 21730 Newland Street, off Pacific Coast Highway and a City owned parcel abutting the HBGS facility.
