CalDesal 2017 Annual Conference


The 5th Annual CalDesal Conference was a great success February 2-3 in San Diego. The conference panels were very informative. Many thanks to the Conference sponsors - and in particular to IDE Americas who sponsored the luncheon speaker. At this year's conference we had sponsors host an information table providing company information to attendees. This was one the most attended CalDesal conferences in our history. We will continue to see our conferences grow. The conference materials are on our website - please feel free to check out the information at this link:

From the Desk of The Executive Director Paul Kelley 

The AMTA had a conference in Long Beach in mid February, and they had many good programs on membrane technologies impacting RO and some case studies of desalination around the world.  The Multi-State Salinity coalition held their summit at the beginning of March.  The MSSC conference had some informative panels regarding salinity management issues for the south western states.  An interesting technology by Enviro Water Minerals Company is being demonstrated at the El Paso BWRO facility to reduce brine disposal to less than 1%.  

CalDesal is the only advocacy group in California dedicated to advancing the responsible development of ocean desalination, groundwater desalination and salinity management activities to help meet the state's water-supply challenges.
