Wastewater Treatment Vital to Meet Industrial Water Demand

Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian has underlined the need to expand water treatment projects, especially in drought-hit regions, for tackling water shortage.
Referring to the unprecedented decline in the country's precipitation, Ardakanian added that treatment of wastewater is the most effective solution to manage water demand, especially for industrial consumption, IRNA reported.
The precipitation rate since the beginning of the current water year (started Sept. 23, 2017) has stood at an average of 128.6 millimeters, indicating a drop of 40% compared with last year’s corresponding period. The figure comprises one-third of the global average.
Located in one of the world’s most water-stressed regions, Iran’s average precipitation rate has been lower than the global average for at least 10 years. Some experts and environmentalists denounce a widely-held notion that chronic water shortages can be alleviated only by higher precipitation.
Ardakanian said wastewater treatment is the best approach to manage the issue.
