Commission denies request to revoke permit for desal plant

The California Coastal Commission on Wednesday rejected an environmental group’s request to revoke the coastal development permit for a desalination plant under construction in Carlsbad.

The Coastal Commission voted 8-4 during its meeting in Oceanside to deny the revocation request.

It was the second time since December that the Coastal Commission has denied an appeal of the permit by the Coast Law Group on behalf of San Diego Coastkeeper, the Surfrider Foundation and the Coastal Environmental Rights Foundation.

Several lawsuits by the groups to halt the project were also unsuccessful. An appeal of the State Lands Commission’s approval of the project is still pending.

The Coastal Commission approved the overall project in November 2007, and work began late last year.

When it is completed in 2012, the plant will be capable of producing about 50 million gallons of drinking water a day, enough to meet the needs of about 300,000 residents.
