Jim Washburn's "No Blood for Water!" (Lost in OC, March 14) states that the Connecticut company Poseidon Resources "built the nation's largest desalination plant in Tampa Bay, Florida, now in its shakedown stage and due to go full-tilt in a couple of months." According to an official with Tampa Bay Water, while Poseidon "designed, permitted and owned the facility," Covanta Tampa Construction handled the actual construction. Since purchased by Tampa Bay Water, the plant began operating on March 17, supplying about 8 million gallons per day into their regional system and should be fully operational by mid- to late April.
