Desalting State of the Art

Excerpt from Desalting State of the Art Man has known for centuries that water could be obtained from the salty oceans. Only in recent times has the need stimulated commercial development of desalting processes and studies of the economics of large-capacity desalting plants utilizing the energy from the atom. This bulletin is the first of a series concerned with the state of the art of desalting published by the Department of Water Resources for the information of the State Legislature, the California Water Commission, organizations and the public interested in the prospects of desalting for California. The Legislature authorized a departmental program in desalting in 1957. Since that time, the Department has issued two bulletins on desalting (No. 93 "Saline Water Demineralization and Nuclear Energy in the California Water Plan," December 1960; and No. 134-62, Saline Water Conversion Activities in California, August 1963). In 1965, by the passage of the Cobey - Porter Saline Water Conversion Law (Water Code Section 12945-12949), the Legislature emphasized its intent that the Department should attempt to find economic and efficient methods of desalting saline water so that it may be made available to help meet the growing water requirements of the State. This bulletin and succeeding issues of the series, as the state of the art and prospects of desalting warrants, will form an important part of the Departments continuing study of water sources to best meet California's water requirements. Our long-range planning will maintain its broad inquiry into the conventional reservoir and canal method of water conservation and transportation and into the possibilities of desalination, waste water reclamation, watershed management, weather modification, and every other new technology that may offer promise.
