Caspian-Semnan Water Transfer Best Choice

The proposed plan, which is almost finalized, involves siphoning 200 million cubic meters of seawater per year to the drought-hit province

The government is now confident that transferring water from the Caspian Sea to Semnan Province is the best alternative to help fight drought in the central plateau, the managing director of Iran Water and Power Resources Development Company said on Wednesday.
"Other proposals have been considered, yet there is no better choice than siphoning seawater and transferring it to Semnan for drinking and industrial purposes after desalination," ILNA also quoted Behrouz Moradi as saying. 
Pilot plans are almost complete and comprehensive studies have been undertaken on marine ecosystem and dumping wastewater in northern regions.
