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.

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.
