Recent statistics show that freshwater distillation stations have a total capacity of 682 million imperial gallons per day. These stations vary in capacity, ranging from 5 million to 15 million imperial gallons per day each, depending on the station. Furthermore, the ministry has included in its plan a project to establish horizontal drainage systems to reduce groundwater levels around some electrical transfer stations. This move aims to protect these stations, totaling approximately 837 major transfer stations nationwide, from the adverse effects of water presence underneath them.
