Dam projects in Ilam Province have either been abandoned or making little progress if any and the Energy Ministry has not fulfilled its promises to help accelerate the construction.
While dams are a major source of safe water for the population (600,000) in Ilam and provide farms and industries, the projects face funding issues, Mehr News Agency reported.
There are three dams operating in the province. Ilam has the capacity to annually produce over 660,000 tons of food including wheat, barley, corn, sugar beet, grapes, peach, lemon, olive, and walnut.
It also produces 182,000 tons of animal products including red meat, chicken, fish, eggs, honey and milk a year.
