This paper evaluates various considerations to determine technical and economic feasibility of seawater treatment in the United States. Surface water modeling and testing to determine optimal intake locations to ensure consistent feed water quality is presented. The importance of pilot testing, pre-treatment design, and post-treatment stabilization is also reviewed. Design innovations may assist in bringing O&M costs.
