Morrow-Meadows provided a complete design-build electrical installation for this 100 million gallons per day (MGD) of seawater to the desalination facility.  Half of the seawater processed by the facility will be converted to high quality drinking water.  The remaining water will be returned to the discharge channel where it is diluted prior to being discharged back into the ocean.  This ensures that the increased salinity will not impact the marine organisms in the vicinity of the discharge channel.
