Seven Seas Water, a private company based in Tampa, confirmed Friday that it has a proposal in the works to build a desalination plant and wants to partner with the City of Corpus Christi to do that.

“Whatever the solution is, it has to be one that the city embraces,” said Doug Brown, CEO for Seven Seas Water.

In the coming weeks, Seven Seas Water will send a detailed plan to the city of Corpus Christi in response to a request by the city on Wednesday for information from interested parties about alternative water supplies.
