Ground and surface waters have little dissolved salts or solids and with minimal treatment can yield potable water safe for drinking. Seawater has a considerable amount of dissolved salts/solids, some 70 times the amounts considered safe for human consumption. It takes a large amount of energy and highly specialized corrosion proof equipment to liberate fresh water from saline waters.
