Tehran Municipality takes out 180 million cubic meters of water from depleting underground resources in the sprawling capital per year, director of the National Water and Wastewater Engineering Company of Iran (Abfa).
“This huge amount is used only for watering parks and greenspaces. This is while the water crisis has been a serious concern for years,” Qasem Taqizadeh Khamesi was quoted as saying by IRNA.
Tehran Municipality uses half million cubic meters of water every day, all of which is pumped from underground tables in bad shape, he complained. 
“To help reduce this prohibitive amount, the Energy Ministry and TM signed a contract on Wednesday (Sept. 2) based on which the latter is obliged to use recycled wastewater instead of the rapidly diminishing underground resources.”
