You said “Clearly, then, innovation has brought a great boon for water supplies for those who live near coastlines and we can expect to see more plants built.” The benefits of desalination need not accrue only to those living near the coast. In the case of Israel, for instance, it should be possible to feed desalinated water into the existing Mekorot/National Water Carrier infrastructure. Or, see my Med-Kinneret Canal proposal, where desalinated water would be used to recharge Lake Kinneret (the Sea of Galilee), and from there enter the existing water “grid”.
