Phase one of Iran’s largest water project comes on line in the southern Khuzestan province in a ceremony attended by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

When fully implemented, the project will see potable water pumped to 21 provincial cities and towns as well as 1,200 villiages, says a provincial official.

The project which comes with a price tag of Rls.13tr (roughly $1.3bn) will see a total of 675 kilometers of pipe laid to provide 4.7 million residents with safe drinking water, the official adds.

The first phase has a capacity of pumping 90,000 m3 of water in 24 hours.

Meanwhile, a new water plant in the provincial port city of Khorramshahr was also scheduled to enter service on Monday.
