The Sindh government is planning to build a desalination plant to overcome water scarcity for residents of Karachi.

Addressing a dialogue at the Institute of Business Administration on “Karachi: The way forward”, the city’s administrator, Murtaza Wahab, said the Ibrahim Hyderi coastal area of the city has been chosen to implement the proposed project of desalination plant.

He told the audience that initially the proposed desalination plant would produce two million gallons of desalinated water daily (MGD). Later, the capacity of the plant would be scaled up to five MGD.
