Interesting proposal. Certainly putting water into aquifers has merit for long-term water supplies. Does the desalination process include removal/filtration of toxins? I'm wondering about several things, 1) BP's oil spill and use of corexit, 2) agricultural runoff, 3) sewage, and 4) toxic algae. I think the water from the Gulf of Mexico must be tested for a variety of toxins before considering the design and process of this project.
