Water Utility Companies are stressed to meet the demand for
delivering fresh drinking water on demand to their subscriber
customers due to shrinking fresh water resources & water scarcity.
It is time to consider Alternative Methods to source and deliver
healthy, fresh and tasty water at lower cost by avoiding centralized
filtration systems and reliance on aging infrastructure.

“Desalination may seem like a panacea, but
from a cost and energy standpoint it’s the worst
deal out there,” says Sara Aminzadeh of the
California Coastkeeper Alliance. Investment
cost is in the millions, plants take over two
years to construct and the annual operating
expenses are prohibitive.
Desalination removes iodine from water and
could increase the risk of iodine-deficiency
Inadequate iodine intake can lead to thyroid
diseases, including nontoxic goiters and even
developmental disorders. Even less severe
deficiencies are associated with hyperthyroidism,
hypothyroidism and thyroid cancer.
In 2018, scientists established a link between the
consumption of desalinated water in Israel and
a 6% higher risk of suffering from heart-related
diseases and death by a heart attack.

"Water recycling is going to be part of that future
if we're going to survive in the Western United
States," said Michael Kiparsky, Director of UC
Berkeley Law School's Wheeler Water Institute.
Kiparsky says right now, many consumers accept
recycled water for irrigation or flushing toilets
but says there's a problem with the "ick" factor
when it comes to recycling water for drinking.
"It's either as good as or in many cases higher
quality than what you can take from the river directly,"
said Kiparsky. Kirparsky says recycling water can
also be more cost-effective than building large
desalination plants or creating parallel infrastructure
piping for potable and non-potable water sources
in buildings and communities.
The city of Los Angeles is aiming to recycle all of its
wastewater by 2035. The ambitious goal was announced
Thursday by Mayor Eric Garcetti from the Hyperion
water reclamation plant in Playa Vista. To achieve
100 percent wastewater recycling, the facility will need to
undergo a $2 billion improvement effort that will take
16 years to complete.
The U.S. government announced its first-ever water shortage declaration
for the Colorado River on Aug. ... Arizona will lose the most
water: 512,000 acre-feet, nearly a fifth of its total Colorado River
allocation of 2.8 million acre-feet. Nevada will lose 21,000 and Mexico
80,000.Aug 18, 2021.
The Colorado River Basin is a primary source for farm and rangeland
irrigation across 5.5 million acres of land and is also used for municipal
and industrial purposes by the region’s 40 million-plus residents.
The region’s hydroelectric infrastructure provides up to 42 gigawatts of
electrical power annually to area customers. As a result of the Colorado River
Compact of 1922, the basin was split into two separate water apportionment
regions, the Upper Basin, which covers Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming
and a small section of Arizona, and the Lower Basin, which covers the majority
of Arizona and provides water to populated sections of Southern California
and Nevada. Under the compact, each basin is allocated 7.5 million acre-feet
yearly, with an additional 1.5 maf dedicated to Mexico.
