Our Mission SolRio champions water security for the American Southwest in the face of drought and climate change. We are working on sustainable solutions to provide a new, large-scale source of drinking water that can sustain productive agriculture and vibrant growth. Working together we can achieve practical, sustainable solutions to drought and climate change. Our Vision Our vision embraces regional scale, solar-powered desalination to create a climate-proof watershed for continued ecological, social and economic vitality. We aim to produce new, clean, drinking water from seawater using the proven reverse osmosis (RO) process at a plant on the California coast. This new water will offset water now being pumped from the Colorado River to serve Los Angeles and San Diego metropolitan areas, leaving more water available to meet the needs of inland Colorado River water users. This approach provides an additional 1,300,000 acre-feet of water available to Upper and Lower Colorado Basin users. Our Values People. Water is a human right. Agriculture. We value the farmers, families, and way of life in the American Southwest. We need a new, reliable large-scale water source in order to sustain and protect the productive agriculture and vibrant growth that drives us forward. Environment. By creating new water, the SolRio Project reduces stress on our lakes and rivers, revitalizing precious ecosystems and protecting key species. We strive to minimize all environmental impacts of our desalination process. Sustainability. We believe in a sustainable future – one that ensures access to water resources for future generations, while protecting the quality of our environment. By using electricity generated by solar power plants, we avoid expense and pollution of fossil fuel generation.
