Support for desalination in California remains at a very high level! In recent weeks, two major public polls have been released, and both demonstrate strong support for desalination to address California’s water resilience concerns.
In June, the California Chamber of Commerce released results from polling that reaffirms public sentiment that California should be doing more to expedite permitting of desalination plants, with 89% of respondents supporting action to move desalination forward!
In July, the Public Policy Institute of California released polling data which demonstrates similarly strong support for “building desalination plants on the California coast,” with 72% of all adults, and 79% of likely voters, supporting that action.
This broad and substantial public support is underscored in the Governor’s Water Supply Strategy, and provides a critical opportunity for CalDesal and our industry colleagues to make meaningful progress in advancing the desalination conversation and move projects forward.
