Excerpt: ...built on a standby basis to existing systems, could have an important role to play in meeting drought situations. I think one of the interesting things that has come out of this study or been confirmed by it is the fact that increments of water are like increments of power; to meet peak demands or to meet unusual demands in drought situations are expensive and we have strong reason to believe, as a result of this study, that as the technology develops, the desalting may well prove to be the cheaper method of providing these increments in specific situations. As our studies on actual processes continue and we approach the question of applying desalting techniques in certain areas, the question of brine disposal--especially from brackish waters--will need further exploration and consideration. In the continued development of the multistage, multieffect flash distillation program, we have been hampered somewhat by the lack of a large plant from which to obtain actual operating experience. This will be rectified shortly. On March 31, bids will be opened for construction of a new, 1-million-gallon-per-day plant in San Diego. Meanwhile, our work on this important process has continued by means of smaller pilot plants and conceptual designs of very large plants. In the past year a number of other nations exhibited a vigorous interest in the desalting program. This show of interest from all over the world can best be summed up, perhaps, by point ing to the singular success of the first international symposium on water desalination held here last October. This symposium was the largest international meeting ever sponsored in Washington, D.C., by the U.S. Government, attracting more than 2,500 delegates and observers from 55 nations of the world.
