A document obtained by the Kansas City Star and the News Tribune could potentially bode well for two important, and unreasonably delayed, water projects in the Southland. One of those projects is the is the Huntington Beach desalination plant. The document, “purportedly leaked from the Trump administration indicates that the proposed desalination plant in Huntington Beach is among 50 infrastructure projects nationwide that the president has designated as a priority,” the Register reported. These pages have long supported the effort in Huntington Beach, which would produce 50 million gallons per day of drinkable water, enough for roughly 300,000 residents. Unfortunately, that project is winding its way through the California environmental process, with environmental groups aiming to thwart it every step of the way.
