    Gujarat shows the way, again. Hitachi is going to build Asia's largest desalination plant to partly service the needs of Dahej SEZ as well as enterprises being set up in Petroleum, Chemical and Petrochemical Investment Region (PCPIR).

    This is indeed very good news.

    The plant in TN will also go a long way in meeting the requirement of people of Chennai.

    Drinking water is not much of a problem.

    It's agriculture that is suffering much..:(

    Water shortage in Chennai isn't much of a problem now-a-days.

    Btw TN has issued a tender for its 3rd desalination plant for Chennai.

    Dude, the water problem in chennai was solved by JJ, not MK. Even now the new plant is approved by JJ not MK. Ever wonder why Chennai was won by ADMK in 2006 though it was considered a DMK stronghold:heh:
