Israel's Finance Ministry has approved funding for the construction of one of the largest water desalination plants in the world. The plant, which is being constructed in Sorek in central Israel, is scheduled to be completed in 2013 at a cost of $400 million. It will desalinate about 150 cubic meters of water per year, or about 20 percent of the water used for household use in Israel, and is expected to be the second largest water desalination plant in the world.
