Renewed Call for Expanding Wastewater Network

Renewed Call for Expanding Wastewater Network Renewed Call for Expanding Wastewater Network

The most stable strategy for having long-term access to sustainable water resources is by expanding wastewater treatment projects.
Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian made the statement in a ceremony to inaugurate a new wastewater plant in Estahban, a city in Fars Province, ILNA reported on Saturday. 
According to the official, less than 48% of the Iranian population are linked with the wastewater network, that is why the private sector should be provided with major financial incentives to play a wider role in expanding the grid, otherwise launching the venture will take a long time. 
"Low levels of precipitation in recent years has forced officials to be particularly sensitive about consumption patterns," Ardakanian said, adding that adopting the most suitable patterns to meet potable and agricultural water demand is high on the ministry's agenda.
