Huntington Beach in Orange County, California is known for its sandy beaches and amazing surfing. However, Brookfield-Poseidon’s dirty desalination plant is not the only thing threatening this community.
Climate change and rising seas will change Huntington Beach in the coming decades. And when combined with the threat from the desalination plant, it could spell disaster for the community and the people that live in it.

If you are scared by what you see, then there is only one thing to do: take action!
The California Coastal Commission is expected to vote in May to decide on a key permit for the project. We need everyone to raise their voice and make sure this environmental and economic injustice is not built in Huntington Beach.
Sign the petition to the California Coastal Commission below to #StopPoseidon.
