Poseidon Water LLC (Poseidon), through a special purpose entity Poseidon Resources (Surfside) LLC, is planning to undertake the construction of a desalination plant in California, the US.

The project involves the construction of a desalination plant with a capacity to produce 50 million imperial gallons of desalinated seawater (MGD) a day on 4.8ha of land.

The project includes the construction of a pumping station, water storage tanks, water conveyance pipelines, an osmosis plant, and other related infrastructure and the installation of safety and security systems.

The project is one of the US government’s 50 priority infrastructure projects listed under the "Priority List: Emergency & National Security Projects" document.

Poseidon and Orange County Water District (OCWD) has signed a long-term water purchase agreement. Under this agreement, Poseidon will sell desalinated water produced at the plant to OCWD from the commencement of construction through 30 years following a commercial operation, for a full contract term of approximately 33 years.

In September 2010, the environmental impact report (EIR) was approved by the OCWD.

Clean Energy Capital Securities LLC (CEC) has been appointed as a financial advisory by the OCWD to prepare a report on the project.

In June 2012, ARB, Inc. (ARB), GHD Inc. (GHD), and Valoriza Agua (Valoriza) are appointed as owners engineer team to undertake the implementation of the project.
