A source with knowledge of the proposal said the proposed desalination plant would be located on the Sea of Cortez in Mexico and the water would be pumped to Arizona, not traded in exchange for more Colorado River water as has been previously speculated. The proposal includes a first phase providing an estimated 300,000 acre-feet of water with two possible additional phases, the source said. The project, which would require federal approval, would also utilize solar power.
Consolidated Water expects the deal to generate $20 million in revenues over the term of the contract of nearly 11.5 years, with the majority of revenues expected in the first 18 months as the company builds and sells the plant […]
Water scarcity is a long-standing and constant issue in Punta Chueca — one of two Comcaac towns on the Sea of Cortez. But the community has now gone five weeks without water from the town’s failing desalination plant.
The Water and Sewage Authority (WASA) is assuring customers in parts of Central Trinidad and in particular the Claxton Bay and Couva areas, who have been experiencing a disruption in their normal water supply that, every effort is being made to remedy this situation.
I love San Miguel de Allende. It’s a lovely town in Mexico, and anyone who wants romance in his or her life should come down here. It’s just turning June, and it’s starting to get hot from Sarasota to Dallas to Los Angeles, but not here.
Since its introduction in the 1960s, electrodialysis (ED) technology has been adopted for a wide range of industrial applications, and today it is the second-most widely used membrane desalination technology.
The traditional technology involves applying a direct-current electric field to flux positive ions across cation exchange membranes in one direction, and negative ions through anion exchange membranes in the opposite direction.
When Senator Pearnel Charles Jr was assigned the water portfolio I held my breath and waited for good news. He is an attorney by profession, but let’s not hold that against him. I see him as one of the Renaissance men in this Administration, and fully expected him to drag this sorry department scratching and kicking into the 21st century.
Weather conditions in San Q1uintin, a region in the northwestern Mexican state of Baja California, are good for growing crops year-round, but the lack of water in the area is forcing farmers to turn to innovative and environmentally friendly technologies, such as desalination, to deal with the problem.
The drought that affected San Quintin from 1985 to 2015 caused the amount of land under cultivation to fall from 28,000 hectares (69,135 acres) to 7,889 hectares (19,479 acres), a reduction of 72 percent.
