Leaders Discuss Irrigation Methods
Slowly the different sets of leaders have began to come together in Iraq to solve different problems that face the renewed Iraqi government. Recently there were a series of meetings that were held by the members of the Mada In Qada, the 2nd BCT combat team, 1st Armored Division, and the Salman Pak local Iraqi government about different issues.
One of the main issues on the agenda at the meetings that were held October 29th was a series of ideas on how to boost the production of local crops. The ability of the nation of Iraq to feed itself is one of the most important issues that faces the newly revised government, and there were a lot of different ideas tossed about.
The local Baghdad province region has about 64 kilometers of land that has no access to water, located between Wahida and Al Lej, but it is an areas that soon may have access to water after all. Different plans to bring water to the area were discussed, and there appears to be some different types of alternatives that may be feasible.
The largest problem dealing with irrigation is the lack of electric power, and the lack of a way to provide for pumping, both for agricultural use and for the individual citizen.
