Sea water desalination plants not viable, says Ramachandra

Stating that sea water desalination plants will do more harm to the marine eco system than solve the drinking water crisis, T.V. Ramachandra, a scientist at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc.), Bengaluru, said here on Friday that such plants will change the salinity level in the sea. Speaking at the inaugural session of ‘pre-lake 2018’ conference at Alva’s College after releasing a study report titled ‘carrying capacity of Netravathi river basin based on the ecological sensitiveness’, he said that such desalination plants would bring down the marine diversity.
