    The United Arab Emirates, Aruba, Australia, Gibraltar, Israel, the Maldives and Saudi Arabia all rely heavily on desalination. Most of the water supply in Gibraltar and the Maldives comes from this process and the others use it to varying degrees, but all seem to rely heavily on it. The largest desalination plant in the world is in Israel. Other countries that use desalination, but not as heavily as those mentioned, include the United Kingdom, United States, Cyprus, and Trinidad and Tobago.
