The government of the Haryana state in northern India on Tuesday announced it would set up a large treatment plant using an Israeli technique for water quality on a canal which provides water to four districts in the region, the Times of India reported on Wednesday.

The announcement was made by a local official after he laid the foundation stone of the plant on the Gurgaon Canal, whose water is used mainly for irrigation purposes. He said that after the plant is built, the water will become used for drinking purposes.

The official, referred to as Dharambir, was one of the members of an Indian delegation to Israel which came to study the Israeli agricultural sector and water management. After his return, the delegation decided that technology used in Israel will be adopted for "optimum use of raw and waste water" in Haryana state.
