Sept. 15, 2011

The city council in Carlsbad, Calif., voted to approve the Carlsbad Desalination Project

Poseidon Resources issued the following statement regarding the Carlsbad, Calif., council vote to approve an agreement with the San Diego County Water Authority on the Carlsbad Desalination Project:

“Poseidon Resources is grateful to the Carlsbad City Council for its decisive action to move the Carlsbad Desalination Project one step closer to full-scale construction.  The City of Carlsbad and County Water Authority staff worked diligently for many months to come to an agreement that was beneficial to all parties. Their willingness to work together and put the needs of the region first demonstrates true leadership.

“The Carlsbad project is the largest shovel-ready water infrastructure project in the state of California. It will create [more than] 2,000 skilled jobs and generate [more than] $350 million in economic activity during the 36-month construction phase.  Once operations begin, the project will support 400 permanent jobs and contribute [more than] $50 million annually to the regional economy.

“We look forward to working with the County Water Authority to finalize a water purchase agreement so that we can start construction on this new locally controlled, drought-proof water supply for San Diego County.”
