1st Desalination Plant in Costa Rica

Converting seawater into drinking water is an idea that will be tangible in the Reserva Conchal hotel, following the construction of the first desalination project in the country.

Gisela Sanchez, hotel spokesperson, cofirmed this, stating that the plant is in a preliminary phase of design studies and permit requests, which they initiated in April of 2014. However, they hope to start work by the end of next year.

"It will produce 23 liters of drinking water per second. The use will be for human consumption within the building project," the spokesperson said in an email. Desalination plants are designed to remove salts from seawater so it can be used for drinking.
