JALALABAD (Pajhwok): The rehabilitation work of a canal in eastern Nangrahar province has been completed at the cost of over $3 million provided by the Worldinfo-icon Bank (WB), an official said on Friday.

Attaullah Khogyani, the governor’s Spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News, the canal was now ready for the flow of water.

Deputy Governor Mohammad Hanif Gardiwal at the ground breaking ceremony said water flow at the canal was stopped since 50-day due to the rehabilitation work.

 Eng. Ghulam Hazrat, acting director of the Nangrahar canalization department, said the canal would now irrigate 15 acres of land and would have the capacity to carry 50 cubic meters water in one second.

The canal begins from the Daronta dame and carried water to Batikot district.
