Iraq Completes $146m Baghdad Water Scheme

By John Lee.

Iraq has completed a new $146-million project to supply drinking water to much of Baghdad’s population.

Saleh al-Mutlaq (pictured), deputy prime minister for service affairs, told Al-Shorfa:

The ministry of municipalities opened the Abu Ghraib Great Water Project … It will provide drinking water to houses through modern networks, and will cover about 50% of capital’s residents … The project is designed to serve the area for 25 years, and will be expanded later in consideration of population growth and urban expansion.

A similar project, carried out by Iraqi companies assisted by German and Turkish companies, is now under way in al-Rasafa in Baghdad, and is expected to be completed by mid-2013.
