Who needs rain when weve got desalination? -- Jeff Szytel and Thomas P. Jones
Desalination has been receiving a lot of attention as Californias drought conditions continue.  If you are curious about the desalination process and how it is being employed to ease water shortages in California and in other parts of the world, you will enjoy this class.

You will learn how the reverse osmosis process is used to reclaim brackish fresh water and to remove salt from seawater.  Youll learn about desalination economics, recent advances in desalination technology, environmental concerns, and the  political obstacles that stand in the way of building new desalination plants in California.

Your instructors will also take you on a tour of the world-wide use of desalination and show you some of the major projects in Australia, Israel and Dubai.  You will also enjoy a detailed overview of the Huntington Beach, Carlsbad and Santa Barbara projects in California.

Finally, you will learn about the status of desalination projects planned or underway in Pismo Beach, Morro Bay and Cambria.

Jeff Szytel is the founder and principal of Water Systems Consulting Inc. located in San Luis Obispo.  He is a professional engineer with more than sixteen years of experience in civil and environmental engineering, specializing in water, wastewater and recycled water systems.  His company is involved in some of the major desalination projects on the Central Coast.
