Desal enables local production of high-quality, pure drinking water, as part of a portfolio of diversified supplies to responsibly address demands.
Desal is drought-resilient and does not rely on variable snowpack and rainfall, making it a dependable source of drinking water.
Desal provides a critical safeguard for local water supplies against unpredictable water shortages resulting from droughts, sea level rise, and earthquakes.
Desalination (desal) plants can detect oil in the source water and, if oil is present, desal treatment technology removes it. Robust testing continues throughout each stage of desal water treatment to ensure high-quality, safe water.
