I'm passionate about Earth preservation in every sense of the phrase. I've written about water issues, pesticide use, drought, California native plants and desalination. I'm well versed in issues regarding climate change (who it's effecting and how they're coping); and pollution and plastic, and how they effect the health of humans, animals and the planet. I follow California's state agencies, such as the California Coastal Commission, State Land Commission and Regional Water Boards, as well as the unfortunate deterioration of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Last Wednesday, the Orange County Water District (OCWD) Board of Directors voted 6-2 to adopt a new term sheet that amends Poseidon’s proposed desalination project in Huntington Beach. The new contract terms only go into effect, however, if Poseidon receives the permits necessary from the Regional Water Quality Control Board in the fourth quarter of this year, and the California Coastal Commission next year.
