LOS ANGELES — The Orange County Water District, Calif. board of directors approved staff recommendations Thursday to study purchasing up to 50 million gallons of drinking water through the Huntington Beach Seawater Desalination Project.

The water district's decision to enter into "discussions with Poseidon provides the opportunity to explore a public-private partnership that ensures the most cost effective delivery of the project and the equitable distribution of its water reliability benefits," said Scott Maloni, Vice President of Poseidon Water. "We look forward to participating with the District in a robust and inclusive public process."
