Tehran Struggling With Fresh Water Problems

There is no more available capacity to implement new water supply schemes in the capital and the only viable strategy is to manage the demand, a water expert at Tehran Regional Water Authority said. 
Reportedly, water consumption in Tehran is annually equal to 4.8 billion cubic meters, comprising household (35.1%), agriculture (56.1%) and green space (6.5%), in addition to industry and service sectors (2.3%).
According to the deputy for planning and development at Tehran Regional Water Authority, the share of the capital from the dams under the management of TRWA has been determined at about 1 bcm per year, Zist Online reported.
