The goal of the Wwest Basin’s Temporary Ocean-Water Desalination Demonstration Project was to demonstrate an environmentally responsible, energy efficient, reliable desalination process. The specific objectives were to develop data for the permitting, design, construction, and operation of West Basin’s proposed full-scale desalination facility. The test plan for the project was structured to meet the project objectives by operating each process component under various operating modes during the optimization period, followed by long-term testing of the optimum parameters. Extensive water quality data was developed on the source and product water under a myriad of operating conditions where relationships were developed for critical constituent concentrations.
