Close to 80,000 cubic meters of industrial and municipal effluent flows into the world famous Karoun River in Ahvaz, Khuzestan Province, every day, head of the provincial branch of Department of Environment said.
“The Ahvaz East Wastewater Treatment Plant (with daily capacity of 112,000 cubic meters) was launched in 2018. But due to the incomplete wastewater infrastructure (sewage collection network) in the region, as little as 20,000 cubic meters of effluent is recycled at the facility per day,” Mohammad Javad Ashrafi was quoted as saying by IRNA.
Ahvaz is divided into eastern and western parts via the  Karoun River that provides water for farming and industries.
