Have there been any major attempts to make salt water fresh so it can be used by humans?

    Desalination plants can remove the salt from seawater and make it potable (drinkable). About 1,200 de-salting plants are in operation in the U.S., although most of these are used to produce purified industrial water. Desalination plants around the world produce 6 billion gallons of drinking water per day. Large-scale plants are under design in San Diego and Tampa; these plants would provide a significant percentage of each city’s drinking water when in operation.

    It seems as though this technology has also been made smaller and more available. There are a number of large conversion projects at plants, but now converters are being made portable.
