No respite for Sistan-Baluchestan despite high precipitation

Financial Tribune – Despite the fact that dams and Chah-Nimeh water reservoirs are full, residents in Sistan-Baluchestan Province are still suffering from the shortage of safe drinking water supply, the provincial Friday prayer leader said.

“Heavy rainfall in April and May notwithstanding, households have to pay large sums of money to have their water tanks filled,” Molavi Abdolhamid was also quoted as saying by IRNA on Saturday.

Referring to the downpour in the period, he noted that large volumes of water are flowing through the border rivers, while those in the vicinity of the rivers cannot quench their thirst.
