As a means of summarizing and bringing up to date information on recent progress in the field of desalination, the Department of the Interior prepared a report on an evaluation of recent efforts in the field of desalinization of brackish and ocean waters. In addition, a request was made of the Atomic Energy Commission for a report on the most recent developments in the field of application of nuclear energy for desalinization purposes by means of combining nuclear reactors for the production of electric energy with desalinization plants, since this appears to be one of the most promising areas for developing an economical process.
