Water Battle Simmering Through Central Regions

Farmers of Isfahan Province have vandalized water pump systems twice this week to protest against water transfer from Kouhrang Dam in Chaharmahal-Bakhtiari to Yazd Province.
The amount of water that previously fed the farms of Isfahan has shrunk with the transfer project that has reportedly supplied Yazd's drinking water for nearly 20 years. 
The attacks caused hours of water cut-off in Yazd both on Saturday and Sunday, Energy Today news website reported. 
"Pumps, taps and electrical systems were destroyed on Friday night. Reparations took so long that water did not reach Yazd before 1:00 p.m. on Saturday," said Mohammad Mehdi Javadianzadeh, head of Yazd regional water company.  
Yet again, the violators ambushed the installations on Saturday night causing another water cut-off.
