Water desalination plant

The water desalination plant was created in the fall of 1915 and it was used to supply water to all the camps and hospitals in the area. It was powered by coal that was used to generate electricity, which was necessary to desalinate the water. The coal used to be unloaded at the Railway Pier and it was arriving by a short railway line without difficulty due to the smooth ground to the plant. The water was pumped into large reservoirs in the Turks Heads area for the water supply of the hospitals.
