Document Description
NOTE: FINAL 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 recerse osmosis technology, post-treatment facilities, product water storage, pump station, 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.
