CALIFORNIA: Ocean Water into Drinking Water

California regulators unanimously approve the $140 million Doheny Ocean Desalination Project that will produce up to 5 million gallons of drinking water per day.

“We’re watching what’s happening at the Colorado River, and it’s not good. Desalination could be part of that solution for water reliability for a broad region.”

Rick Shintaku, general manager of the South Coast Water District

The plant is expected to produce up to 5 million gallons of drinking water per day, from ocean water pumped through reverse osmosis filters, providing enough water for up to 40,000 people in Orange County. The brine resulting from desalination will be mingled with the discharge of a neighboring wastewater treatment plant.
