A big project for a big need - fresh water for a thirsty California
The Carlsbad Desalination Plant is located on industrially zoned land adjacent to the Encina Power Station in Carlsbad. Poseidon Water has obtained all required environmental permits and environmental clearances necessary for the construction of the facilities. On December 28, 2012, Poseidon began construction of the desalination plant; see time lapse videos and photos below. The Carlsbad Desalination Plant went on-line delivering water to San Diego County in December of 2015.
