Despite the visible reduction in per capita water consumption in southern Bushehr Province, the region is still struggling with severe water shortages, head of water quality department in Bushehr Water and Wastewater Company said.
“Annual per capita consumption has declined from 10,000 cubic meters to 7,000 cubic meters over the past few years. However, the province’s annual water deficit is in the neighborhood of 30 million cubic meters,” Jaber Mozafarizadeh was quoted as saying by the Energy Ministry news portal.
Located in southwestern Iran, the arid province is one of the most water-stressed regions. The conditions in the province are so bad that water authorities dispatch water tankers to various areas (especially in the extremely hot summers).
One effective way to tackle the water paucity in the area is to collect and treat unconventional water resources including wastewater and grey water, the official said, adding that collection and use of agricultural drainage water has also helped.
