Poseidon Water has proposed a desalination plant in Huntington Beach and wants to use existing open-water intake for collecting and discharging water. The California Coastal Commission staff is recommending approval of the project but with conditions that include using subsurface intakes.

In Newport Beach, a crowd has gathered for a California Coastal Commission meeting about a proposed desalination plant in Huntington Beach.
It's been argued that the plant could provide as much as 50 gallons of water a day to the region but there is a lot of opposition building against the proposal. KPCC's Ed Joyce joins the show with an update on the meeting.
