Touring the Carlsbad Desalination Plant
April 5, 2016
Back in January the California Ag Today team had the opportunity to tour the Carlsbad Desalination Plant in San Diego County. We learned from Ashley Jenkins, public affairs specialist for the San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA), about the importance of the desalination plant to the water supply in San Diego. Teresa Penunuri, public affairs supervisor for the SDCWA, explained how the mindset has changed from opposing to desal in San Diego to asking for more. And Frank Hilliker, owner of Hilliker’s Ranch Fresh Eggs, shared how the plant means having a reliable water supply for his 30,000 chickens.
