Maestas: Poseidon Desalination Would Worsen Environmental Injustice in Orange County

I grew up in Irvine, with a deep awareness of how important the ocean is.

Low-income families and communities of color—who already face the worst impacts of climate change and housing costs—would be locked into paying for more expensive drinking water.
