Tito Ochieng, the director of water services in Turkana, in the north of the country, said the potential investor – Saudi-owned Almar Water – has already signed a deal to build a $160m (£125m) desalination plant in Mombasa.
It authorised the Ministries of Education, Higher Education and Scientific Research, other ministries, public bodies and local councils to recruit holders of post- graduate degrees, and to exempt this round of recruitment from applicable clauses in the 2019 Federal Budget.
The report, required by state and federal law, does not differ significantly from a draft version released 18 months ago. But its release is a significant step towards West Basin’s goal of constructing a desalination plant on the 33-acre El Segundo Generating Station site currently operated by NRG in El Segundo, just north of the Manhattan Beach border.

South Sinai contemplates introducing water treatment plants operating in the Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) system in parallel to adding more desalination plants while improving the efficiency of existing ones.
For that purpose, Chairman of South Sinai Water Company Abdel Hamid Ahmed Hamdy met with Minister of Military Production Mohamed Said al-Assar and CEO of International Desalination and Water Treatment (LLC) (IDWT) Nabil al-Maraghy.
Hamdy said the governorate plans to build a ZLD water treatment plant in Sharm El Sheikh in order to render sewage water suitable for irrigation. The project will be accomplished by the ministry’s Qaha Company for Chemical Industries (Military Factory 270) and IDWT. The daily capacity of the plant is 6,000 cubic meters.
