Desalination In The Caribbean

Islands have long relied on the process to supplement natural water supplies

More than 7,000 islands of the Caribbean Archipelago are scattered over a million-square-mile area between North and South America. Some smaller islands are naturally dry, but some volcanic islands — like Grenada and St. Lucia — are well forested and provide significant water catchment to support spring water and surface water. But, as populations, agriculture, and industry grow, desalination is becoming more attractive as a water source throughout the entire region.
