Why seawater desalination?
For centuries, our region has scoured for a sustainable water supply, one that gives the Coastal Bend quality water at an affordable price. Unlike our metropolitan neighbors to the north, Corpus Christi is geographically situated where it’s difficult to source groundwater that’s fit to drink or produce wells with enough water to supply our region at a fiscally sound price.
Following the devastating drought of 2011, area stakeholders came together with a heightened sense of awareness to secure a drought-resistant water supply for our region. After years of cross-examining, scrutinizing and researching every possible solution for the Coastal Bend, seawater desalination has consistently risen to the top as the superior water supply for our region as the most resilient, sustainable, responsible and cost-effective water source for the Coastal Bend.
