Tens of Water Plans Ready for Inauguration

Tens of water and wastewater projects, including dams, desalination units, wastewater treatment plants and water supply plans, are to be officially inaugurated in the next 10 days, which mark the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the Energy Ministry announced.
Four dams of Talvar, Seimareh, Sarab and Tang-Hamam in Zanjan, Ilam, Gilan and Kermanshah provinces, respectively, are ready to go on stream in the next few days, Mehr News Agency reported.
The dams are capable of storing more than 1.29 billion cubic meters of water annually.
Six desalination units, located in coastal cities, will be inaugurated, of which four are implemented by the private sector with an investment of over $17 million.
Officials also inaugurate 20 water supply plans worth $14 million. The projects include nine pumping stations and 108 wells. With the implementation of these plans, 352 kilometers of pipelines, with a transfer capacity of 5,726 liters per second, will be added to the national water grid.
Likewise, seven wastewater treatment units and many other plans in the sector are to be exploited in Shiraz, Kashan, Ardabil, Qom and Mashhad.
Moreover, 441 villages will be provided with drinking water at a cost of $23 million. On the other hand, drinking water will be supplied to 161 other villages separately, which cost $19 million.
Iran is the world’s third leading country in dam construction, with some 200 contracting companies, 70 consultant firms and 30 corporations as well as hundreds of hydroelectric manufacturing units operating projects in 40 countries.
Over the past three decades, it has built 600 dams, an average of 20 a year, to irrigate farms and provide electricity.
