  In Yuma, Ariz., federal officials have restarted an idled desalination plant, long seen as a white elephant from a bygone era, partly in the hope of purifying salty underground water for. In June , the wetland became part of Mexico's Upper Gulf of California and Colorado River Delta Biosphere Reserve. The Yuma Desalting Plant, completed in , was constructed by the U.S. to desalinate the agricultural runoff that flows to the Cienega. The high cost of operation and abundant Colorado River flow have kept the plant . For soil desalination, s World Heritage Encyclopedia, the aggregation of the largest online encyclopedias available, and the most definitive collection ever assembled. My Account | Register | Help.   Then, Government engineers proposed a desalting plant capable of handling million gallons a day as the keystone of a long‐range plan for managing the salinity of the lower Colorado River.

Authorization for these expenditures is contained in Public Law (PL), the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Act, enacted Jwhich authorizes construction of desalting complex, including a desalt- ing plant to reduce the salinity of drain water from the Wellton-Mohawk division of the Gila Project, a prereatment plant, extension of a bypass drain to carry the reject stream from the desalting Cited by: 2.

The 96 million US gallon per day (gpd) ( m 3 /s) Yuma desalination plant for desalination of irrigation return flows ( mg/L total dissolved salts (TDS)) to the Colorado River is designed to operate at 70% water recovery.

At this large scale, addition of chemicals for APS and addition of antiscalants could increase the cost of RO by: 8. Salinity Control The salinity of the Colorado River at its source.

20• May/June • Southwest Hydrology. The Yuma Desalting Plant is a 72 million gallon-per-day, reverse osmosis plant located adjacent to the Colorado River in Yuma, Ariz. The U.S.

Bureau of Reclamation constructed the plant File Size: KB. Balancing Water Needs on the Lower Colorado River: Recommendations of the Yuma Desalting Plant/Cienega de Santa Clara Workgroup I.

The Yuma Desalting Plant/Cienega de Santa Clara Workgroup “Run the Yuma Desalting Plant. The Federal Government needs to fulfill its promise to the Basin States and salvage valuable Colorado River. The Colorado River’s desalination plant is on its last legs The obscure Paradox Valley Unit keeps the Colorado River’s salinity levels in check for farmers, but causes quakes upstream.

Yuma desalting plant set to restart on Colo. River, Arizona, Nevada and California are nearing agreement to restart a long-dormant water-desalination plant in Yuma, further stretching supplies on the overallocated Colorado River.

A high water recovery hybrid system (without antiscalants) was designed and simulated for desalination of Colorado River (CR) water (TDS = mg/L) at the same capacity as the Yuma plant (96 Mgpd).

Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Project authorized the construction of the Yuma Desalting Plant (YDP), required by Minuteand provided funding for salinity control projects throughout.

To date, the Yuma Desalting Plant has never been fully online. It operated at one-third capacity for nearly a year, but a flood on the Gila river in washed out a section of the drainage canal, halting operation. In the meantime, the Yuma Desalting Plant. the Yuma Desalting Plant (YDP) in order to collect performance and cost data, to test changes to the plant which were implemented while the plant was being maintained, and to determine if any additional corrective actions to plant design or equipment would be necessary for potential long-term operation of the plant.
