The first phase of Kahak water supply complex in Qom Province went into operation in a ceremony attended by the Majlis Speakar Ali Larijani.

The new facility will supply 700-800 cubic meters of water a day to Kahak district, managing director of Qom Province Rural Water and Wastewater Company (Abfar), Alijan Sadeghpour, was quoted by ISNA as saying.

Plans call for eventual supply of water to the Khahak region plus 12 adjoining villages from the Dez River tributary via pipelines. In the first phase, potable water will be supplied to Kahak Town, as well as Varjan, Sirou, and Imamzadeh Ibrahim villages.

Currently 8,500 residents of Kahak district are covered by Abfar. Upon completion of the project, 100 liters per second of potable water will be made available. In total, $15 million (500 billion rials) has been allocated for the water project.

Qom water network was upgraded recently with a smart system, increasing the efficiency of the network by more than 50 percent. Efficient monitoring of the water distribution network is helping reduce the worsening water shortages while the network is being upgraded to minimize water seepage and waste.
