The city of Corpus Christi has long made known its desire to bring seawater desalination to the area, but where such a facility would be located has remained unknown.

That question is closer to being answered, after council members were presented Tuesday an update on the status of the city’s ongoing efforts to identify alternative water sources.

The city is looking at sites along the La Quinta Channel and the Inner Harbor, but have not identified specific locations for a seawater desalination plant.
