Prachi Patel/TechReview: Solar-Powered Desalination:

When completed at the end of 2012, the plant will produce 30,000 cubic meters of desalinated water per day to meet the needs of 100,000 people.

Out here on the Left Coast we're getting ready to vastly increase the amount of water the North sends to the South. Much better build something 'local' - say, a few well-placed desalinators - than literally steal food from our farmers.
