In this new era of high technology, seawater desalination has turned out to be one of the high main concerns due to the urbanization and growths. Thus, the analysis of properties and potential of seawater desalination at Pulau Salak is one of the significant ideas. This show the process can help to improve the issue of freshwater at Pulau Salak. The main objective of this study is to see the properties of the seawater desalination at Pulau Salak. As the villagers had use the well water as their daily used, the well water sample also will be tested to see the potential of the desalination processes. This study is focused on Pulau Salak area which can only reach by boat. The area has no electricity and freshwater supply. The properties of seawater shows that the river still did not achieve the Class lIB standard and after the desalination process, only some of the parameters reach the Class I standard of National Water Quality Standard of Malaysia (NWQSM). For the well water it is in Class 1m and after the desalination processes, the parameter shows the water is in Class I except for the pH value. Further study and concern from certain agency may help to improved the water quality of the water as well as the social needs of the villagers.
