TAPPING THE OCEAN
As population growth continues to expand, seawater desalination is rapidly gaining popularity for the extraction of potable water from the ocean worldwide as a solution to the growing world drinking water shortage. Over 15,000 desalination facilities are currently in operation in more than 120 countries worldwide, and even in some desert states including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates who now rely on desalinated water for more than 70% of their water supply.
Seawater desalination produces low salinity potable water that is safe to drink from seawater through thermal evaporation, or membrane separation. Seawater desalination plants produce over 3.5 billion gallons of potable water a day globally. Seawater desalination plants are finally gaining popularity in the United States, too, with the first large seawater desalination plant beginning operation in Tampa, Florida in 2003, by producing high quality fresh potable water from seawater originating from the Tampa Bay.
