Just say no to desalination

A desalination plant on or close to the beach makes no sense in Orange County CA. Orange County has one of the best water recycle programs anywhere. We want to use as much water coming down our storm drains as possible. That way we keep contaminants out of the ocean and beach. On October 19 the State Lands Committee will be hearing big business state it’s reason to build a desal plant here but we will be in attendance to keep a balance. Come join us early if possible. We will have more details on Wednesday October 18. The meeting will be held at Huntington Beach at City Council Chambers. 2000 Main Street H.B. 92648
