Santa Barbara residents begin receiving water from desal plant

Posted: Updated:

Santa Barbara's desalination plant has begun sending desalinated water into the city's water distribution system, city officials reported Tuesday.

The plant was reactivated in response to the drought.

It's expected to produce nearly three-million gallons of water per day, or about 30 percent of the city's demand.

The plant is still in the start-up and testing phase, and city officials say desalinated water production will be intermittent during this time.
