Water Desalination – Is it a good option?One Water Systems
Faced with a diminishing water supply, coastal cities frequently rely on desalination facilities for their drinking water. Permitting for new seawater desalination facilities, however, it’s a complex process because of the environmental effects associated with the seawater intake and brine discharge processes.
Additionally, the cost associated with seawater desalination is often criticized for being very energy-intensive and expansive.
As the technology and treatment processes continue to advance, addressing some of these challenges, water hungry regions may reconsider this water supply alternative.
