Just a comment – the “Desalination Amendment” to the Ocean Plan sets very high environmental protection bars for the design, operation, and mitigation of desalination intakes and discharges. It requires 1.0-mm mesh screens (to minimize entrainment of smaller non-swimming organisms) and enough screening area to ensure through-screen velocity does not exceed 0.5 ft/sec (to minimize impingement of larger organisms). CA is widely recognized for setting the highest bar in this regard.
Response 1 - you are correct. Mr. Juarez showed an example of this type of screen in his presentation.
