energy — from the solar "pads" floating in the distillation pond, to meet its energy needs. The water would flow through an underground aqueduct to the site, ideally directed to the site through gravity. Salt crystals produce air saturated with healthy negative ions. In contrast, pollution produces large quantities of positive ions creating an unhealthy electrical imbalance in the air. The concentration of negative ions is naturally higher around waterfalls and by the ocean; when water droplets are dispersed, an electrical charge is created. Research has proven the therapeutic values of salt caves and their positive influence in the treatment of respiratory diseases.
