  • Patent number: 4122012
    Abstract: A system for the desalinization of sea water is provided, which includes a barrier buried to a depth below the low tide water level in a sandy beach, and a collector vault, or well, buried in the beach behind the barrier, the vault having an opening in its side for receiving water passing through the barrier. The barrier is filled with selected filter materials, and the sand in the area between the barrier and the vault is treated with a selected material. After a period of pumping, desalinated water will appear in the vault and may be pumped out of the vault. Whenever the water in the vault is pumped below a particular level, a new supply of desalinated water will flow in through the opening in its side from the barrier.
