Held at Kellogg West Conference Center; Pomona CA.

Report #64 - Summary -

National Water Research Institute (NWRI) and the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) have developed and sustained a program of collaberative research. NWRI planned and presented this workshop, which is a direct outgrowth of Reclamation's April, 2000, workshop entitled Growing the U.S. Water Supply Through Purification Technologies (report #56). NWRI used the Nominal Group Technique (NGT). The focus of this workshop was to address the question: What are the highest priority issues that need to be addressed now to speed the installation of cost-effective desalting/desalination facilities? Part 1 of this document describes the results of the working groups. Part 2 of this document reports the results of the consensus-building element of the workshop.
