The Bureau of Reclamation has released (November, 2005) sixteen projects and dedicated millions of dollars to national desalination research investigating issues such as slant well technology, electrocoagulation pretreatment, zero-liquid discharge and wind powered desalination. This paper provides background on initiatives such as Water
2025 and Proposition 50 in addition to an overview on seawater projects in the United
States. Nationally, there is a wide variety of projects focusing on desalination however
the significant seawater desalination planned facilities remain primarily in California,
Texas and Florida.
