USA Bureau of Reclamation Awards $3.62M for Desalination and Water Purification Research in 13 States

… Bureau of Reclamation Acting Commissioner Alan Mikkelsen announced today that Reclamation will provide $3.62 million to conduct laboratory and pilot-scale desalination and water purification research in 13 states.

Sixteen laboratory projects, four new pilot-scale projects and one continuing pilot-scale project were selected. The $3.62 million in federal funding is being matched by $3.52 million in non-federal funds. “Desalination and water treatment provide a potential new source of water for communities throughout the West,” Mikkelsen said.

“The research funding provided today will enable new technologies to be studied to see if they can help improve the treatment […]
