Californias start to realize that while we must hope for the improve we must prepare ourselves for the long-term drought and ever-increasing water bills.
Standard reporting and monitoring requirements are applied for all new and already build desalination facilities. On May 62015, state Water Resources Control Board in Sacramento endorsed a new permission to process for seawater desalination plans. The next step is the evaluation of the best locations and technologies to minimize the environmental risks. This allowance set state regulators free from regional boards, a day after the announcement of sweeping cutback in water use.
