The book assembles the latest research on new design techniques in water supplies using desalinated seawater. The authors
examine the diverse issues related to the intakes and outfalls of these facilities. They clarify how and why these key components
of the facilities impact the cost of operation and subsequently the cost of water supplied to the consumers. The book consists
of contributed articles from a number of experts in the field who presented their findings at the "Desalination Intakes and
Outfalls" workshop held at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia in October, 2013. The
book integrates coverage relevant to a wide variety of researchers and professionals in the general fields of environmental
engineering and sustainable development.
