Santa Barbara Company Plans To Develop Off Shore Desalination Plant – California, USA
A Santa Barbara Company wants to purify ocean water off the coast of Vandenberg Space Force Base. According to the Tribune, Ocean Portal Water Company has proposed building a floating osmosis desalination buoy. The plan is to provide roughly 950 acre-feet of freshwater annually. That’s equal to more than 309 million gallons. The project is in its very early stages. If the pilot program is approved, the desalination buoy could be in the water by 2025.
