WaterSMART: Desalination Construction Projects Under the WIIN Act

Desalination is an essential tool in stretching the limited water supplies in the Western United States.

Desalination projects develop and supplement municipal and irrigation water supplies through the treatment of ocean or brackish water, thereby providing a local supply, providing flexibility


during water shortages, and diversifying the water supply portfolio.

These projects provide growing communities with new sources of clean water and increase water management flexibility, making our water supply more reliable.

Desalination projects are an important part of the Department’s WaterSMART Program.

For further information on the WaterSMART Program, see www.usbr.gov/watersmart.
