Construction of a 50-kilometer pipeline from Karoun River to Gheyzaniyeh district in Ahvaz, Khuzestan Province, will end in June, a deputy head of provincial Rural Water and Wastewater Company said.
“The pipeline will help supply sufficient water (12 million cubic meters per day) to the region, alleviating water crisis to some extent [that has pushed the locals over the edge],” Adel Harbavi was quoted as saying by ILNA.
