$24m to Build Sewage Network in Basra

The U.S. Provincial Reconstruction Team has embarked on a $24.400 million project to remove unhealthy water and build a sanitary sewage network in the southern Iraq city of Basra, the PRT chief said on Thursday.

“Two networks costing $22.200 million will be erected in the areas of al-Abbas and al-Qibla to serve about 40,000 local residents. The project is scheduled to be finalized by next July,” the PRT chief told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

“Currently the team is fixing sewage blockage and sanitary sewage pipelines all over the province,” he added.

He said that two other projects costing $1.700 million will focus on repairing the main sewage pipeline in Basra in addition to providing power generators to enhance electricity supply for the Hamdan sewage water treatment station, southern Basra.

The oil-rich port city of Basra lies 590 km south of the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

    The project seems to be excellent, I think it will benefit many people around you. Over that amount of money is too high, not even TelexFree USA can join that kind of money.
