Document Description
The Project would develop, construct, and operate an ocean water desalination facility located in Dana Point, including subsurface intake wells proposed at Doheny State Beach, and various conveyance lines connecting the intake and discharge facilities lo existing District property located approximately 1/2 mile inland, adjacent to San Juan Creek. The District approved only the initial Phase I "Local" Project, which would provide up lo 5 million gallons per day (MGD) of potable water. The environmental impact report (EIR) also evaluated a potential future Regional Project of up to 15 MGD, at a programmatic level. However, the District has not approved that Regional Project, which would require further review under CEQA and separate approval. Further information about the Project is provided on the District's website at: www.scwd.ord/desal
