The mission of BGNDRF is to pursue research into supply-enhancing technologies for brackish groundwater. There are five areas of focus at the Brackish Groundwater National Desalination Research Facility. They are: 1. Solutions to Concentrate Management 2. Renewable Energy/Desalination Hybrids 3. Desalination Technologies for Produced Waters 4. Small-Scale Desalination Systems 5. Outreach and Education The Research Facility is integrated into Reclamation's existing desalination research and development program. It fills a unique role and draws upon the expertise and research activities already established.
