NoteStreams By Ian Cecere
California’s historic drought and general thirst for water has led state and local officials to seek alternative sources of fresh water. One of the proposed alternatives is seawater desalination (or “desal”), which removes salt and minerals from ocean water to produce suitable drinking water. Recently Surfrider Foundation noticed that proposals for desal projects have picked up particular momentum in the Monterey Bay area in California, and has been engaging to ensure the projects are carried out only as absolutely necessary and in a way that minimizes environmental impacts.
