How RO Desalination Improves Water Security in Coastal Areas?


Clean and fresh water is the need of individual as well as society, we need pure and fresh water sources for maintaining our needs, but despite having freshwater and underground water sources, we are not sure about the purity of water due to various different reasons. In such circumstances where pure water has become the essential need of peoples, we need to find a way to address this issue and RO desalination has come up as perfect solution for our problems to provide us with water security.

What is RO and how does it works?

Reverse osmosis (RO) is the process used for water purification. It uses a semi-permeable membrane to remove the impurities and contaminants present in water. It use to purify water by applying pressure on water to pass through the membrane, in this process the particles, ions, and molecules gets separated that are larger than the membrane's pores. RO is commonly used for the purpose of desalination, drinking water purification, and in industrial processes.

How RO desalination improves water security in coastal areas?

  1. Diversification of Water Sources: The coastal areas often rely heavily on local freshwater sources such as river and ponds, which is very much susceptible to droughts, pollution, and contamination by pollutants. RO desalination helps us in the diversification of water sources and reducing the dependence on traditional sources for water supplies.
  2. Increased Water Supply: The RO desalination is the best way to produce a substantial amount of fresh water daily, it helps in enhancing the available water supply in coastal regions. This additional supply which is provided by RO is crucial for meeting the increasing demand of the growing population.
  3. Reduced Vulnerability to Climate Change: The total dependence on climate for the need of water lead toward greater vulnerability. Coastal areas are very vulnerable to the changing impacts of climate, such as the rising sea levels, increased salinity of water, and drought.  In such changing climate RO desalination can provide us with a stable source of freshwater, it may help communities to adapt and face the challenges of climate change.
  4. Emergency Response: The RO desalination systems is proved to be reliable in the emergency like situations. It is often used for emergency situations such as is case of natural disasters or water supply disruptions. It can provide us with a quick and reliable source of fresh and pure drinking water when traditional sources are compromised, contaminated or polluted.
  5. Agriculture and Industry: Coastal areas having the access to desalinated water can support agricultural activities and industrial processes that require large quantities of freshwater. The industries which use to make packed drinking water or brewages may get benefitted by using the RO desalinated water. These industries will provide jobs and thus boost local economies and reduce the strain and pressure on existing freshwater sources.
  6. Water Quality Improvement: RO desalination helps us to produces high-quality, purified water with minimum impurities, including salt, minerals, and contaminants, chemicals and pollutants. The RO system improves the overall quality of water and reduces the risks of various health diseases associated with consumption of contaminated water.
  7. Water Conservation: The RO system use to purify the water and make it drinkable with minimum impurities and thus it reduces the burden on freshwater or underground water sources to provide the drinkable water. By purifying the seawater or brackish water for desalination, we can conserve our freshwater sources.
  8. Infrastructure Resilience: RO desalination facilities if strategically located in coastal areas can ensuring a decentralized and resilient water supply infrastructure. By decentralized RO facilities we can minimizes the risks associated with the centralized water supply systems which are vulnerable to disruption due to various causes.
  9. Long-Term Planning: RO desalination provide us with a long-term solution to water security and water scarcity challenges in coastal regions. It allows us with better planning and preparation for future needs of water.
  10. Environmental Considerations: Although RO technology use to consume energy for the purification of water but modern RO technologies are energy efficient and sustainable to environmental.

Considering the needs, it seems as RO desalination facilities are best suited facilities for coastal areas, they provide us with the sustainable and reliable source of fresh water without creating any adverse effect to the environment.
