Controlling the runoff in northern Mazandaran Province is essential and can have added economic benefit as water can be used for rice cultivation, managing director of the Regional Water Company said.
“Haraz Dam [under construction] has the capacity to control about 14% of the province's surface water and can positively affect the farming community in the region,” IRNA quoted Mohammad Ebrahim Yakhkeshi as saying.
When operational the dam will help cut rice import, he said. Iran is among the major rice importers in the world.
