Antioch Launches the Region’s First Water Desalination Project

The city of Antioch’s water supply has been challenged in recent years by a variety of factors. But the Brackish Water Desalination Project, the first desalination project of its kind in the five-county Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta region, is intended to improve the reliability of the city’s water.

The city filed its notice of preparation for the project just over four years ago and then broke ground on the plant in February of this year.
