Arizona officials voted to advance a $5.5-billion project to build a water desalination plant, 200-mile pipeline and associated infrastructure as part of a plan to address drought-driven water uncertainty in the state. But growing controversy around the plan and the method of implementation threatens to derail the proposal.
IDE says the plant could supply up to 3 million households—more than the 2.6 million households currently in Arizona. The plant would initially supply less water per year, about 300,000 acre-ft, according to the company.

MIT’s portable desalination unit makes clean drinking water ‘with less power than a phone charger’ – Massachusetts – United States

After reading the Deseret Magazine article concerning the drying up of our desert areas, it was painfully obvious that in the allocation of use of Colorado River water, California came out looking like a water thief in using 52% of the water while contributing little or nothing to the system.
The state of California has one of the greatest sources of water on the planet Earth in the Pacific Ocean. Plans should be made for California to develop a desalination system to replace that 52% of Colorado River water and give it […]
Corpus Christi councilmen express concern for plans regarding proposed desalination plant – Texas – United States
Ducey unveiled the idea in his State of the State address earlier this year. He proposed a $1 billion project to draw treated water to Morelos Dam near Yuma, but the challenges to the idea remain difficult to solve.
Poseidon Water’s controversial proposal for a Huntington Beach desalination plant might cost water customers more than previously thought, a factor that could create a new obstacle to construction of the $1.4 billion project.
