Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi opened the water treatment plant of Bahr Al-Baqar, the largest of its kind worldwide, on September 27th, according to a presidential statement.

The newly inaugurated plant comes at a cost of EGP 20 billion and a production capacity of 5.6 million cubic meters per day.

The triple-treated water from the Bahr Al-Baqar plant will be transferred to the lands of North Sinai to contribute to the reclamation of 400,000 feddans.

The plant is considered one in a series of national projects implemented to develop Sinai and enhance the optimum use of water resources in the country.
