Carlsbad desalination plant tour (photos)

Posted by George J Janczyn on February 23, 2016

Here are photos I took today during a guided tour of the recently opened Claude “Bud” Lewis Carlsbad Desalination Plant. The tour was conducted by Jessica Jones, Community Outreach Manger for Poseidon Water. Additional tours will be held in the future, although many of them are already booked. See Poseidon’s website for tour information (

Photos can be clicked for an enlarged version, which may be needed to read the posterboard descriptions. The last photo shows everyone receiving a glass of newly desalinated water.

    Hey, stranger!
    Where’ve you been???

    • Hi Richard – The reason is that when I first started blogging it was because there was a drought of reporting on water issues in the area, but then the real drought came and for now there’s plenty of reporting. Those people have more resources, money, and time than I do so for now I’ve been busy doing other things, but I still keep tabs on water issues. And when I get invited on a water facilities tour, I definitely accept!
