Stabilization of Desalinated Water

Stabilization of Desalinated Water

Desalination of sea or brackish water is an important, rapidly growing source of drinking water around the world. The mineral composition of the water is significantly changed and then partially reconstituted to achieve stable finished water that can be distributed in pipes. The behavior of desalinated water in the distribution system remains largely non-documented, and potential issues that may arise after introducing desalinated water into existing distribution systems include impacts on internal corrosion control, disinfectants and disinfection by-products, hydraulics, infrastructure maintenance, aesthetics, and customer acceptance.

This course presents important lessons learned in the stabilization of desalinated water, provides a survey of industry practices, and outlines important concepts and guidelines for the post-treatment stabilization of membrane permeate. It also highlights existing information gaps and identifies associated research needs in the industry.

Learning Objectives

This course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Overview of desalination processes
  • Permeate Conditioning/Corrosion Control
  • Challenges of Disinfection By-Product Formation
  • Impacts of Blending Permeate Into Existing Distribution System
  • Secondary Water Quality Impacts to Potable, Wastewater, and Recycled Water
