In addition, desalination plants can provide reliable water sources even if drought is happening.
In 2009, more than 1,400 desalination plants were operating in the world, producing 15 billion gallons of water per day.
Another 244 factories are under construction, many of which are located in the Middle East [

However, the world's largest reverse osmosis desalination plant opened in May 2010 is located on the Mediterranean coast of Israel [source: Dow].

Except for the fact that the tap water will not leave empty plastic bottles [source: Ahmad].
But what if it's possible to bring portable desalination equipment to produce your own fresh drinking water?
The idea may not be that far.
