Desalination Considered to Replenish Aquifers

Two popular forms of desalination include electrodialysis reversal for brackish water treatment, and reverse osmosis for sea water.

In its search for supplemental water, Nipomo Community Services District is researching the feasibility of a desalination plant as a possible answer to recharging their aquifer.

An educational presentation by Boyle Engineering to the district's board of directors covered two popular forms of desalination used throughout the United States.

They are electrodialysis reversal, used frequently with brackish water treatment, and reverse osmosis, the preferred method for sea water.

If the district considers using water from the Pacific Ocean, the reverse osmosis process would yield the best results, according to Ernie Kertinen of Boyle Engineering.

NCSD President Mike Winn recommends looking at desalination as a viable option for recharging the area's underground aquifers and meeting the needs of a growing community.

"Because we are in a state of overdraft, we have been told by a judge that it is necessary to recharge our aquifer with supplemental water," Winn said. "We were ordered to put back 2,500 acre-feet of water per year."

An acre-foot is about 326,000 gallons, or the amount of water generally considered to supply the annual needs of four to 10 people in an urban environment.
