As fresh water supplies dwindle and regulations become more stringent, reverse osmosis systems have gained popularity among utilities. Their ability to treat brackish or salty water and to remove numerous contaminants provide opportunities to treat lower quality waters or reclaim treated effluent. Most concerns about reverse osmosis relate to high costs and low recovery rates.
