Contents Notes
Investigations were made to determine the technical feasibility of desalination of tile drainage. Reverse osmosis (RO) and electrodialysis (ED) processes were studied. Two RO membrane stacks were investigated. The first, a high salt rejection, low product yield, was operated on variable quality (3000-7000 mg/l TDS) irrigation return water. The second RO stack and also the ED unit were operated on return waters that were controlled to have a 3000 mg/l TDS. The second RO stack was designed for a high product rate and low salt rejection. The ED data are based on a single pass through the membrane stack. Costs are reported.
