Egypt needs about 22 billion pounds ($2.8 billion) to finance the construction of water treatment plants, the Middle East News Agency reported, citing President Abdel-Fattah El- Sisi.

The facilities need to be able to process at least 3 billion cubic meters of water per year and perform tertiary water treatment, which goes beyond basic measures, MENA reported, citing El Sisi.
