Water crisis in Iran continues

Wednesday, 31 July 2013

Mehr News is reporting on the water crisis in Asalwya, which is considered Iran’s energy capital. The Bushehr Province generally suffers from a severe water shortage, with over 90% of its drinking water supplied from neighboring provinces. Some cities and villages in the province, including Asalwya, suffer from a severe water shortage despite numerous complaints by area residents. According to one resident, water pollution is so severe that citizens are forced to drink bottled mineral water. The water that flows in the pipes is not fit for even showering or washing dishes.
