Tehran's Water Reserves Sufficient for Summer

A Tehran Province water official has said problems such as water shortage or reduced pressure are not expected during the scorching summer months.
Mohammad Parvaresh, managing director of Tehran Province Water and Wastewater Company, told ISNA on Monday that the province, home to around 13 million people, will pass the summer without facing any water problem.
"Of course, this depends on the prevalence of the current consumption pattern," he said. "If consumption goes up, we will not be able to ensure steady water supply."
Parvaresh noted that measures have been taken to reduce water pressure of high consumers, but the company has not resorted to that yet this year.
While this may be good news for the residents of Tehran, it does not mean the province, indeed the country, is out of the woods.
The city of Tehran, along with other major cities such as Isfahan and Tabriz, have some of the highest per capita water consumption rate in the country.
The main reason Tehran is expected to see the hot summer months out without any major issues is due to surprisingly adequate rainfall in the past few months.
In other words, water use in the city has not declined, which is a problem that will sooner or later cause serious shortages for Tehran.
“Average rainfall in the province exceeded 141 millimeters on Feb. 12 (since the beginning of the water year on Sept. 22, 2016), which is better than last year. But make no mistake, this doesn’t mean our water problems are over,” Mohammad Reza Bakhtiari, chief executive of the Tehran Regional Water Authority, said in February.
Average precipitation in Tehran Province is expected to reach 250 milliliters by the end of the current water year.
