Close to 9 billion cubic meters of water have flowed into Khuzestan Province’s big dams since the beginning of the current water year (Sept. 2022), the head of R&D Department of the provincial water company said.
“The figure [9 bcm] indicates a 20% rise in volume compared with the corresponding period of last year,” Ali Shahbazi was also quoted as saying by ISNA.
The three large dams of the region, namely Maroun, Dez and Karoun, are respectively 85%, 75% and 70% full, he added, noting that the water level of dams will increase gradually as snow starts thawing in April.
“However, the case with Karkheh Dam is different and its water level is lower than that of last year by 11%,” he said.
