There's a really good documentary, not sure if it's their production or not, but I saw it on the BBC, called There Will Be Water.

It's about an engineer named Bill Watts and his plan to pump ocean water into the middle of the Qatari desert and then convert into fresh water via the use of evaporation stations.

Then use that water to grow crops in greenhouses, there in the desert, instead of importing them.

The concentrated brine is only one of the issues - the massive water intake on a desalinization plants kills everything from single cell organisms (the building blocks of ocean life) to larger fish - and their nursery's.

There's a proposal in for desalination plant in one of the best sport fishing areas on the Texas coast - it will destroy the fishing and the whole economy that is supports it.

The water cycle:

1. Evaporation

2. Condensation

3. Precipitation

4. Conglomeration of clean, fresh, distilled water.

For those who want to go the natural route.
