Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis: Purifying the Next Best Water Source


The safety and stability of the world’s water supplies have become a pressing political and economic issue so much so that the threat to this essential resource could yet pose a present danger to the global economy. With unprecedented climate changes comes a torrent of environmental impacts like drought, over flooding, and fluctuating sea levels, which threaten the availability and hygienic properties of potable water. Add that to the ever swelling population, along with the demand, and you’ve got a global-scale problem brewing.

As surface water sources continue to dwindle due to the current drought conditions in California, brackish water may soon become the next best viable source. This extremely salty water source is known to occur in coastal areas and aquifers where there is a confluence of fresh water and saline water.
