Poseidon Meeting at OCWD on April 30th
We hope to see you at the Orange County Water District meeting on Thursday, April 30 at 5:30 PM. The District will be voting on Poseidon's Term Sheet. The address is at 18700 Ward St., Fountain Valley. The new drought regulations should trigger conservation that would at the very least pull the plug on the Poseidon plan but we must move forward in case common sense becomes the next shortage.
