Completion of the second phase of a wastewater treatment plant in Tabriz, East Azarbaijan Province, will help supply four cubic meters of water per second to Lake Urmia or 125 million cubic meters a year, director of the provincial Water and Wastewater Company said.
“Construction of the plant is 80% complete and it has been designed to cover one million people,” Alireza Imanlou was quoted as saying by the Energy Ministry news website.
The National Water and Wastewater Engineering Company of Iran (Abfa) started work on the project in 2016 and has spent close to 2,000 billion rials ($10 million) so far, which was borrowed from the National Development Fund of Iran, the country's sovereign wealth fund, he said.
The second phase of the plant will increase the current capacity (130 cubic meters per day) to 207,000 cm/d, a large part of which will be diverted to the lake.
