Rising levels of salt in California’s surface and groundwater supplies require careful management to maintain water quality and protect the environment. It is critical to California’s water future that efforts are made to manage salt problems that could degrade water quality, increase treatment costs, jeopardize food production, and render some water supplies unfit for use. Salt level rise presents a growing challenge to the state's long-term water future. Salt buildup in agricultural soils and water sources can be detrimental if not effectively managed. Desalination makes it possible to desalinate increasingly brackish water, reducing the salinity of surface and groundwater supplies while helping to create a more sustainable water future for California
