Water shortage problem to be resolved soon in Nimruz province

The potable water shortage problem of western Nimruz province is soon going to be resolved as the first phase of a large-scale water scheme has been successfully completed.

The first phase involved laying of water pipes to central collection points.

The project was supposed to kick-off in 2012, but due to unknown reasons it was postponed to 2014.

Costing USD 8.4mn, the final phase of the project involves connecting the pipes to each household in the city and is expected to be completed by the end of next year.

According to the Afghan Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development, the Nimruz water project is the largest water scheme in the country to date.
