Marin Municipal Water District Desalination Project
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
A seawater desalination plant is proposed that could ultimately supply up to 15 million gallons a day (mgd). The first phase will be 10 mgd with another 5 mg added later. The desalination plant would take "raw water" or "feed water" from San Rafael Bay and treat it to produce drinkable (potable) water. Treatment would involve a "pretreatment" phase to remove solids from the raw water, then desalination using reverse osmosis (RO) technology, followed by "post treatment" of desalted water to produce drinking water with taste and other characteristics comparable to that presently provided to the Marin Municipal Water District's customers. The RO process would produce "permeate" or "product water" for drinking, and saline "concentrate" or "brine" that would be discharged back into San Rafael Bay.
