The overall objective of this project is to eliminate the contribution of the total dissolved solids (TDS) coming from Paradox Valley and thereby improve the quality of water for downstream water uses. The method found to be most feasible to accomplish this objective is the construction of a reservoir downstream from Paradox Valley to contain the brine discharges. Benefits for the reduction of TDS have not been calculated but appear to be in excess of the construction cost. A bibliography and maps are included.
