AbstractAs the world’s population grows and climate change continues to affect the planet regional water supply has become an important issue for many places. The state of California has its own unique issues with water supply given its drought history and massive population. This case study aims to look at the feasibility of widescale implementation of desalination to supplement and replace California’s supply of Colorado River Water. Using desalination to purify ocean saltwater into potable water is a unique form of water production that has its own advantages and disadvantages.
