To help address water shortages in Hormozgan Province, a water desalination unit is being completed in the village of Ziarat in the central district of Bandar Lengeh, managing director of the provincial Water and Wastewater Company said.
"Using reverse osmosis technology, the plant is projected to become operational in August and will purify 3,000 cubic meters of water a day," Amin Qasmi was quoted as saying by the Energy Ministry news portal.
As the water crisis worsens in the dry region where “underground resources are also drying up rapidly, tapping into unconventional water resources namely saline water has become inevitable,” he said. 
Reverse osmosis is a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane to remove ions, molecules and larger particles from drinking water.
