The fourth unit of Zahedan Water Desalination Plant in Zahedan, Sistan-Baluchestan Province, was inaugurated Tuesday, managing director of the provincial Water and Wastewater Company said. 
"Using reverse osmosis technology the new phase will produce 10,000 cubic meters of safe water a day," Alireza Qasemi was quoted as saying by the Energy Ministry news portal Paven.
The facility in Zahedan desalinates water that is diverted from three big reservoirs in the south of the Sistan Plain called Chah-Nimeh. Surplus water from Hirmand River flows into the three reservoirs through a canal. 
The reservoirs have a capacity of 700 million cubic meters of water which must be desalinated before being used.
