Kerman water project near completion

Financial Tribune – The project to transfer drinking water from Safa Rud Dam to Kerman City in southern Kerman Province will be completed in two weeks, managing director of Kerman Regional Water Company said.

“Helping alleviate shortage of drinking water in the provincial capital” is the goal of the project in this region that has been grappling with low precipitation and drought for years, the Energy Ministry news portal Paven quoted Ebrahim Alizadeh as saying.

A 38-kilometer pipeline will transfer 21,000 liters of fresh water per second from Safa Rud Dam in Rabor County in the southeast of the province to Kerman.
