Abstract: A field study was made to evaluate the applicability and problems of desalting brackish ground water from basaltic and reef limestone aquifers in Honolulu, Hawaii with the electrodialysis process. The three-week study indicated that the brackish water at both sites was upgraded to potable quality and the rejection of ionized salts was above 80 percent. No pretreatment was necessary. Both the average production and rejection rates were about 420 gpd. An economic evaluation was not determinable from the short-term results.
