    [size=52]Water Resources: The sources of water pollution are government sources[/size]

    [size=45]Bright news[/size]
    [size=45]Many environmental and health studies have shown that there is an increase in pollution rates in the rivers of Iraq, especially the Tigris River, on whose banks large cities are built from north to south, and to a lesser extent the Euphrates River due to sources of pollution, while the Ministry of Environment confirmed through its official spokesman that the sources of water pollution are sources Governmental.[/size]
    [size=45]complaint[/size]
    [size=45]Citizen Hazem Khalil complained in his interview with (Al-Mada) about the repeated work of discharging sewage directly into the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, as he stressed that “this water is contaminated with dangerous substances and germs that cause epidemics and diseases and spreads pollution along the rivers.” Pointing out that “the unsuitability of this water makes residents suffer from unpleasant odors as well as skin and respiratory diseases because it will be a dumping ground for waste and collect live and dead animals.”[/size]
    [size=45]Environmental specialists confirm that this pollution is not new today, as Iraq is in the process of increasing population every year and there are no signs of reforming this issue, in addition to the neighboring countries that have contributed greatly to the exacerbation of this problem due to cutting off water flows from their lands, which causes drought and water scarcity, accompanied by pollution in The mouth of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.[/size]
    [size=45]Sources of pollution[/size]
    [size=45]Spokesman for the Ministry of Water Resources, Dr. Khaled Shamal, said in a statement specifically to him (Al-Mada), that “the Iraqi rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates, and the tributaries and canals that feed them or from which they feed, pass over long distances and paths from northern to southern Iraq through thousands of kilometers of waterways, whether they are the Tigris or the Euphrates.” Or irrigation canals, as the water quality is now lower than normal levels due to the large number of pollutants and sources of pollution in Iraq, and their sources are many.” Pointing out that “the first source is sewage, return water, and sewage water, whether from the Municipality of Baghdad, the governorates, or all municipal departments, and return water from government institutions such as health institutions, hospitals, medical centers, and the sewage associated with them as well, in addition to the other source, which is return water.” From water liquefaction plants from petrochemical complexes, from industrial departments, from electricity departments, from private sector activity, and from citizens collectively and individually when they pollute rivers in one way or another.”[/size]
    [size=45]Source of the problem[/size]
    [size=45]Shamal added, “There are external sources of pollution that may come from the Tigris or Euphrates rivers at the moment they enter Iraqi territory. Basically, they carry a percentage of pollutants that may be somewhat high, or a salinity percentage, most likely in Iraq.” He stressed, “The big problem is that the sources of pollution are government sources linked to the Baghdad Municipality, the governorates, the industrial departments, the petrochemical departments, the oil, water and sewage department, and the health institutions affiliated with the Ministry of Health, and also linked to the Ministry of Agriculture, given that the drainage water is return and may be polluted water, as some farmers They use unlicensed fertilizers, and some of them throw waste, animal waste, and dead animals into waterways and rivers for disposal.”[/size]
    [size=45]Shamal continues, speaking to (Al-Mada), that “the government, with the concept of sustainability, is serious and diligent in its work to achieve water safety, but the issue of water sustainability requires time, work plans, methodology, and legislation, in addition to its need for concerted efforts, and with the water scarcity that is afflicting Iraq and the region with the factors of water drought.” In addition to the lack of rain and high temperature, we need to reduce water consumption and make the most of the returning water, whether it is from sewers, wastewater, or other water.”[/size]
    [size=45]Three factors for the end of the crisis[/size]
    [size=45]Shamal continues, “The Prime Minister banned an opinion meeting a few months ago in the Ministry of Water Resources and spoke about twenty-two topics related to its water, including two topics about pollutants, while his advisor recommended that approval should not be given to any project that discharges into river water, whatever it may be.” This project unless there is an advanced treatment plant attached to the project designs and implemented before the project itself is implemented.” Noting that, “Now the storage is the minimum possible and critical, so we cannot sacrifice drinking water for the Iraqi people to repair the damage, and therefore we need the support of all media institutions to promote the concept of water sustainability and the concept of rationalizing water consumption. There is also an important matter, which is the issue of sustainability, sustainable engineering, and correspondence.” Sustainability requires three basic factors: the first factor is legislation, the second is awareness, and the third factor is allocations for application purposes. Therefore, water sustainability and the water resources sector are the top priorities of this government’s work. Therefore, we hope that the government will take serious steps in the field of achieving sustainability through the Council. The highest water.”[/size]
    [size=45]Solution[/size]
    [size=45]Environmental expert Hamza Ramadan explains to (Al-Mada), “There is no specific percentage of the latest pollution of river water in Iraq, but the Ministry of Environment announced in one of the statements that the percentage of river pollution reached 90% due to the discharge of sewage without treatment, but there are treatments.” This includes developing and maintaining treatment plants to purify wastewater before discharging it into rivers, and implementing decisive plans to reduce air and water pollution, which include recycling waste and using it to produce electrical energy and organic fertilizers, in addition to launching mechanisms to measure determinants of environmental pollutants. Emitted by electrical and oil stations in the country, as well as preventing the throwing of untreated pollutants into rivers, noting that “radical solutions still require a long time, as the infrastructure of the capital, Baghdad, needs to expand the capacity of sewage stations.”[/size]
    [size=45]It is noteworthy that, according to the UN representative in Iraq, the percentage of pollution in Iraq's rivers is 90 percent, and 7 million people currently suffer from reduced access to water, which creates a major multiplier effect of the threats to Iraq's stability.[/size]
