Poseidon Ocean Desalination Plants
Initial Studies | Long Beach & Carlsbad, California
Applied Planning managed the preparation of environmental documents that analyzed two separate water desalination facilities proposed for construction by Poseidon Resources, Inc. The first of these facilities is located in the Alamitos Bay area of the City of Long Beach, and the second is located in coastal Carlsbad.
Both facilities were designed to fit within and employ portions of underutilized industrial sites with existing access to ocean water.
The environmental review for these projects addressed both the program level impacts associated with implementation of the water supply strategy and the project level impacts associated with the provision of desalinated ocean water on a permanent basis.
