Phase III:
Plans, Profiles, Specifications

The goal of the Design Phase is to create the most cost effective and reliable brackish groundwater desalination system that satisfies the primary planning objectives. Piloting studies provide the opportunity to evaluate actual performance of proposed treatment system under site-specific conditions prior to final design and permitting. Of all the factors that influence the design process, the quality of the raw water is the most significant.
