[size=52]Water resources: reservoir water does not exceed 12% of its capacity[/size]

[size=45]Baghdad / Firas Adnan[/size]
[size=45]The Ministry of Water Resources confirmed that the water available in the reservoirs amounts to only 12% of its capacity, pointing to a plan to construct important harvest dams, noting that the rain waves helped reduce releases for what it provides in irrigating crops and strengthening groundwater.[/size]
[size=45]"Iraq is looking forward to the rains that occurred during the past days," said Ali Radhi, a spokesman for the ministry.[/size]
[size=45]Radi added, "The last wave of rain during the past hours resulted in some torrential rains on the western side, in addition to the front of the Hamrin Dam on the eastern side."[/size]
[size=45]He pointed out, "The Ministry of Water Resources, with its plan for this season to absorb these torrents and rains, has made a number of preparations and preparations, according to the locations of the rainfall and the occurrence of torrents."[/size]
[size=45]Radi pointed out, "The priority will be to secure water for areas that were greatly deprived during the dry seasons, such as the marshes and the southern regions, and help secure the first irrigation for the winter agricultural season and push the salty tongue in the Shatt al-Arab."[/size]
[size=45]He stressed, "The amounts that fall at the heights of dams and reservoirs will be used to enhance water storage, and this is also a priority for the ministry."[/size]
[size=45]Radi noted, "The ministry is concerned with managing raw water in the irrigation network, rivers, waterways, and reservoirs in general. As for rainwater drainage in streets and neighborhoods, it is the responsibility of municipal departments or the Baghdad Municipality."[/size]
[size=45]And he stressed, "The Ministry of Water Resources contributes with all its human or mechanical efforts to support and benefit from rainwater drainage operations."[/size]
[size=45]Radi continued, "Whenever the rains fall, they will benefit the country, whether in enhancing water reserves, feeding the marshes, or strengthening groundwater and irrigating crops."[/size]
[size=45]And he added, "The last year of flooding in Iraq was in 2019, and the ministry has benefited greatly from storing all the water revenues that were achieved."[/size]
[size=45]Radi explained, "The stockpiles that were achieved in 2019 were a savior for the country in meeting all requirements during the years of scarcity that followed that year."[/size]
[size=45]He revealed, “The ministry has reduced releases from dams and reservoirs because there is another source, which is rainwater; Because the requirements and competition for surface water are less than before.[/size]
[size=45]And Rady went on to say, "This measure is necessary to enhance water storage and benefit from it in the next stage in which there will be no rain."[/size]
[size=45]He pointed out, "Iraq, due to the conditions of scarcity it went through, has a very large storage void in dams and reservoirs."[/size]
[size=45]Rady concluded, “The amount available is about 12% of the total storage capacity, and there is a tendency to construct dams to harvest water, which are very important and benefit from all the water in depressions, valleys and rain, and collect it in certain areas in order to irrigate the surrounding areas and strengthen groundwater.” .[/size]
[size=45]For his part, the former advisor in the Parliamentary Agriculture Committee, Adel Al-Mukhtar, believes that "Iraq is still suffering from mismanagement in the water file."[/size]
[size=45]Al-Mukhtar added, "Farmers are continuing with the old irrigation irrigation, despite the calls for the use of modern irrigation systems that were launched since 2017."[/size]
[size=45]He explained, "The rain waves are important, but benefiting from them is supposed to be accompanied by urgent government measures and not to waste water, as happened in the past."[/size]
[size=45]Iraq is one of the five countries most affected by climatic changes and desertification, and it has suffered from severe water drought in recent years due to the lack of rainfall and the non-compliance of neighboring countries with international laws related to the sharing of damage in cross-border rivers.[/size]
