The coastal district faces serious crisis of potable water due to salinity and rising sea level following climate change.
PKSF has so far installed 70 RO plants to ensure pure drinking water in Bagerhat, Barguna, Khulna, Satkhira, Patuakhali and Pirojpur.
The key feature of these plants is that they collect water from open sources rather than extracting groundwater.
The plant can produce enough water (1,000 litres per hour) to meet the demand of some 250 families on a regular basis.
