Desalination refers to a process that removes excess salt and other minerals from water, allowing us to create water consumable by humans and for use in agriculture by converting large amounts of seawater to "desalinated" water. During this desalination process, various minerals and salts are trapped in filters and subsequently released back into the seawater. This "brine" that is being dumped back into the seawater has an even higher concentration of salt and is more acidic than before the desalination process, which in turn creates even more environmental problems.
