Desalination is a technique were ocean water is turned into drinking water, by removing the salt and putting it back into the ocean.
Since 2005 West Basin Municipal Water District has operated a Pilot Project of desalination. The L.A. Conservation Corps’ SEA Lab facility in Redondo Beach, is operated on a fully developed urban site previously used by Southern California Edison and AES Corporation.
The name of the project is called Water Reliability 2020 and they are busy collecting support cards from businesses and elected officials, to support efforts to make desalination a more cost-effective means of obtaining water.
With the potential crisis looming in the delta, desalination is a process already in use in countries like Australia, China, Japan and many counties in Africa.
