To help ease water shortages in southern Hormozgan Province, supply of desalinated water to small towns will increase by almost 30% or 40,000 cubic meters per day to reach 170,000 cm/d in October, managing director of the provincial Water and Wastewater Company said.
"Desalination plants in the province, which annually produce 46 million cubic meters of potable water, meet 26% of the region’s total demand. Wells and dams account for the majority 74%," Amin Qasami was quoted as saying by the Energy Ministry news portal.
Work on the Bandar Abbas Desalination Plant is over and it will become operational by the end of the month, Qasami said.
