Keep in mind that this process is regarding desalinization, not water purification. I'm sure if graphene solves the problems of desalinization, it will work wonders with purification, but there are adequate water purification systems located in most places, but water desalinization is a massively expensive procedure in comparison.

A robust and cost effective desalinization system is literally one of the biggest necessities we're going to need in the next century, as average rainfall levels continue to fall all over the U.S.

I know it may be impractical but I see giant desalinization inlets from the ocean leading to a network of irrigation and river systems for the West coast.
