Survey for $32m water supply scheme launched

Survey for $32m water supply scheme launched

Apr 24, 2011 - 20:48

QALA-I-NAW (PANinfo-icon):  A survey for a multimillion water supply scheme was launched in northwestern Badghis province on Sunday.

Minister of Rural Development and Rehabilitation Jarullah Mansoori was in Badghis at the launch of the feasibility study for the $32 million (1. 456 afghanis) project.

Work on the scheme, which would benefit more than 10,000 residents of provincial capital and Qadis district, was initiated five months back and would be completed in a year, the minister said. 

During his visit, the minister also inaugurated a 124 square metres retaining wall, which would protect 90 acres of farmland from the seasonal floods.

Governor Dilbar Arman and other representatives of the province urged the minister to start work on a ring road, connecting Badghis with neighbouring Herat province.
