The director of the Seawater Desalination Plant in Tobruk, Mohamed Rizk has warned of a water crisis in the city because of the obsolescence of the current equipment.
Rizk urged authorities in the east to support the plant and prevent a water crisis in the city.
"The Seawater Desalination Plant in Tobruk has been working for over 20 years and its equipment are outdated. Spare part should be made available for the system to operate efficiently," Rizk explained in a press statement.
He warned if the plant is to stop it will entail a major water crisis, given that the station is the only water source in the city, according to Rizk.
