To separate Ca from the 6% saline sprinkling water containing NaCl, MgCl2, MgS[O.sub.4], CaS[O.sub.4], and KCl that have not permeated the membrane, the oxalic soda [(COONa)2] produced at the ethanol factory is poured in the sprinkling water so that oxalic calcium (CaC2O4) is precipitated and removed.
