Study Sites

Our research project is designed around a sectoral analysis of global desalination and water reuse in several case studies: 

  • San Antonio, El Paso and Corpus Christi, Texas
  • Southern California
  • Perth,¬†Australia
  • Tel Aviv, Israel

Each case faces contemporary and projected water scarcity due to increased growth and projected climate change, and represents diverse strategies and governance landscape that influence the roll-out of unconventional urban water source development. Moreover, these cases reflect the common practice of desalination and water reuse operating in conjunction with one another, underscoring the need to study the interaction of these systems in urban water security plans rather than in isolation.
