What about desalination plants?: California Coastal Commission OKs desalination plant in Orange County: https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2022-10-13/california-coastal-commission-oks-desalination-plant-in-orange-county
Ryan Edwards
44:02
We live right next to the Pacific Ocean, which has plenty of water. I know that the desalination plant in Huntington Beach was denied, but there are now plans to build the smaller one in Orange County.
Beth Abels

HI Ryan, I will add your question to the our list- We will have a chance for Q&A at for speakers in the last part of our workshop today.
Ryan Edwards
47:06
@Beth - Ok; thanks.
Jennifer Alvarado

Is there sound?
Lourdes Brent

We also had a question in the chat about desalination.
Ryan Edwards
01:05:06
California is essentially a desert, but the earth is 3/4 water, so maybe we should set up more desalination plants next to the Pacific Ocean to increase our water supply. I guess that the downside maybe harming sealife.

@Ryan, I think George has some interesting perspectives on Desalination plants- he knows much more than I do. I do understand that they use huge amounts of fossil fuels to desalinate.
Beth Abels
01:13:27
We will get to the question, I promise
Ryan Edwards
01:15:31
@Beth - ok; thanks. What about using new sources of energy, like hydrogen or electricity to run the plants? I have a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle and it works well with even outputting water.
Sam Medina
01:27:28
Where would the trees planted come from?
Tracie Oken
01:27:55
Interesting comment on lawns. Should we keep our residential lawns alive?
Denise Robb
01:28:55
I think she meant public lawns

And removing invasive species upstream, means native seed proliferation downstream.
Ryan Edwards
01:34:22
Has there been any discussion on using nuclear energy to run water desalination plants?
Ashley Sparks-Jamal (she/her)
01:42:57
Yes! Thank you for that point! :-)
Latricia Jones

I would love to remove my lawn. Are there programs or funding to promote landscaping?
