Due to the recent flooding in southern Kerman Province following heavy rainfall, 40% of the residents in Rudbar County don’t have access to piped water and their daily needs are supplied by tankers, governor of the city, Ataollah Navaki, said. The flooding caused $8.4 million in losses, including $1.4 million damage to the water supply network, IRNA quoted him as saying. The overflowing Halil River exacerbated the problem, he said, adding that “Halil is one of the most important rivers in the province and many minor seasonal or temporary rivers from neighboring counties converge on it.”
