More water for Karachi

And no this is not rain water. This is clean drinking water desalinated straight from the Arabian Sea. With these two water treatment plants and another one that is about to start operating soon, it is expected that water shortage in the city will be pretty much taken care of.

    One can put million water plants on the Arabian Sea and still will not solve Karachi’s water problem until population growth in Karachi stopped, first by enforcing minimum age 30/25 for marriage of men/women, enforcing two child policy, and by encouraging economic development in other parts of Pakistan to reduce economic migration. ALso, enforcing ticket purchase policy in Pak Railways will go a long way too, since I guess it is easy to travel for free to Karachi from anywhere in Pakistan. In fact, and I am being a typicl cynical Balma here, it is probably encouraged by other cities in Paksitan. Sure, why should they deal with their own problems when they can just put the folks on train to Karachi for free.

    Erm… since when is desalinated water drinkable? unless its softened water which i doubt.

  10. mansoor (unregistered) on October 25th, 2007 @ 11:45 am

    anathema: the desalination process also softens the water in the process.

    examples are the scores of desalination plants in gulf.
