Planning for Desal
The Port of Corpus Christi has completed the filing of a permit to develop a 50-million gallon per day desalination plant on Harbor Island. The Port recognizes that our community and economy are dependent upon tourism and fisheries within a healthy coastal ecosystem. We value our neighbors and are committed to ensuring that the plan reflects the goals of the region’s economy and environment.
