New Dams in Bushehr to Help Store Surface Runoff

Two dams were built in southern Bushehr Province in eight years and six more are under construction.
Bushehr lacks efficient infrastructure to collect and conserve surface runoff after rainstorms. As a result, water penetrates the wastewater collection systems and damages pipes flooding homes and streets, IRNA reported.
As there are not enough dams in the province to collect the surface water after torrential seasonal rains, annually 2.5 billion cubic meters of the runoff pass through cities and villages and directly pours into the Persian Gulf, harming farmlands and damaging urban and rural infrastructure on the way.
