Completion of two embankment projects in Laghman

laghman mehtarlamPajhwok Afghan News reports the execution of two river embankment projects on the outskirts of Mehtarlam in eastern Laghman province.

The project was funded by a joint venture of the World Food Program (WFP) and the Japanese Embassy in Kabul at a cost of USD 240,000.

The 200 and 250 metre-long walls would help keep arable lands protected from soil erosion by preventing the overflowing of the rivers, said Sarhadi Zwak, the governor’s spokesman.

A Ziyarat resident Fakharullah said the river became flooded as rainy season began, threatening thousands of homes and farms nearby. He said the embankment would hold the soil and keep it from being washed away.
