Water Levels In Iran’s Southern Dams Rising After years

Via The Iran Project, an update on Iran’s water situation:

Deluge in the past few days in southern and southeastern Iran has inflicted damages on cities, villages and roads and endangered lives. But at the same time it has helped fill dams that saw little water in years.

“There are 30 dams in Sistan-Baluchestan Province, with a capacity of around 2 billion cubic meters, of which 64% is full now,” managing director of Sistan-Baluchestan Regional Water Company said.

“Average rainfall has increased extensively compared to previous years, and with more water stored in dams it is hoped that farmers will have no water problem in the coming months,” ILNA quoted Atabak Jafari as saying
