Many of you may be seeing mailers and videos promoting the Poseidon desalination plant. Poseidon is working on acquiring the required permits to build its desalinization plant adjacent to the AES power plant on Pacific Coast Highway here in Huntington Beach. BCLT is an environmental organization, and although our primary focus is on Bolsa Chica, it and our coastal environment are forever linked. As such, we at BCLT are very concerned about threats to our coastal environment, including the impacts projected to be caused directly from a fully functioning Poseidon desalinization plant. The ocean is the life blood of Bolsa Chica, and we will not support any project that threatens our ocean wildlife. The Poseidon plant is expected when operational to create a 421.4 acre dead zone, or “area of production forgone” as it is described in the permitting documents. As for the mitigation that Poseidon is stating that they will give to Bolsa Chica – yes, Bolsa Chica is in need of considerable and continuing funding, the damage that people inflicted on Bolsa Chica for over one hundred years left it in need of significant care. BCLT is working hard with the State and Federal agencies involved in the oversight of our wetlands to help identify ways to care for Bolsa Chica in a more fiscally sustainable manner without compromising on biological diversity, and without creating dead zones in our fragile coastal ecosystems.
