Why a Guidance Manual?
By 2060, Texas will need an additional 8.8 million acre-feet of water to meet the demands of a population that is expected to more than double. Since 2002, Texas has supported investigating the potential for using technologies for seawater and brackish groundwater desalination. The goal of the Texas Water Development Board in publishing this Guidance Manual is to educate Texas communities about the emerging opportunities of brackish groundwater desalination to meet some of this projected water demands.
