2,000 Residents Receive Healthy Water Once Again
The overall water quality in the Baghdad region has been spotty to say the least. But recently the water networks have received an upgrade, to the tune of $2.6 million dollars. The region of Kadamiyah has received a new water pipeline system, courtesy of the US Army Corps of Engineers, and the region is rejoicing at the idea of fresh, clean drinkable water.
The US Army Corps of Engineers has been supervising the Baghdad Water authority, and providing support for the project, and the efforts of the workmen and construction workers have began to pay off. The project is nearly complete, and the new pipeline system will supply a better quality and large quantity of water.
Nearly 17,000 meters of new pipeline has been laid, at each of the two sites, and the new pipe is made from strong iron ductile water pipe. Both of the new pipelines are in the process of being hydrostatically tested, and sterilized and flushed before they will be put into full service.
The materials in the water pipe and pipeline network are of high quality, which is a new experience. In the past many of the pipe line infrastructures were constructed of shoddy materials, which often led to leakages and breakdowns.
The new pipeline system will serve and supply over 2000 homes and will help build the area. The ability for clean water to provide for new businesses will give additional potential for businesses and new companies to relocate into the area.
