Precise Development Plan and Desalination Plant Project (EIR 03-05)
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Public Utilities (U) for desalination plant site and surrounding power station. Land uses, zoning and General Plan designations vary for the offsite pipeline.

Document Description
The project is a proposal to (1) construct and operate a 50 million gallon per day seawater desalination plant and other appurtenant and ancillary water and support facilities to produce potable water, including an offsite water delivery pipeline system; and (2) establish a Precise Development Plan (PDP) for the Encina Power Station (EPS). The desalination plant would be located at the Encina Power Station in Carlsbad. The offsite pipeline system would extend into the cities of Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista. The PDP would serve as the primary City of Carlsbad land use application for the desalination plant and as a document to establish existing land uses at and development land use standards for the EPS. The project does not proposed to modify EPS operations or existing facilities, other than discharge channel and electrical connections.
