Paul L. O’Neil, newly selected CEO/manager of the Vista Chamber of Commerce, recently addressed the Bonsall Rotary. A man of a very rich background, he spoke mainly about the Carlsbad Poseidon Project for treating saltwater.
He stated that the government processes are incredible. Seeing this highly desirable project to approval has been one of his most proud achievements.
The plant will furnish 100 percent of the drinking water needs of Carlsbad and assist with the needs of Oceanside, San Marcos, San Diego, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, Escondido, Chula Vista, National City and the unincorporated communities of Rainbow, Bonsall and Fallbrook. They will be the direct beneficiaries of a new, affordable and reliable water supply developed at no expense to the region’s taxpayers.
