Public Notice          Project Plans

The applicant proposes to construct a seawater desalination plant with intake structures and outfall structures/diffusers and pipelines within the waters of the Inner Harbor, onshore pipeline within adjacent wetlands, and an onshore processing facility. The seawater desalination project would involve an intake structure in the Inner Harbor with waterlines that lead to a pump station on land. From the pump station, waterlines would then lead further inland to the main project components associated with treatment facilities.
