Statement of Issue:
In May 2022, the California Coastal Commission denied a Coastal Development Permit for the Poseidon Desalination Plant proposed at 21730 Newland Street. This denial effectively prevents the plan's construction and operation in Huntington Beach. As such, City Council is requested to adopt Resolution No. 2022-77,which would rescind local project approvals: decertify SEIR No. 10-001; rescind CUP No. 02-004, EPA No. 10-001, CDP No. 10-014, and TPM No. 10-130; and terminate related agreements for the Poseidon seawater desalination project.
