Urgent….Fast flow to sweep Tigris River within 24 hours
Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) The Iraqi Ministry of Water Resources stressed on Saturday that “Tigris River will witness fast flow and rise of water level during the next 24 hours.”
The Director General of the National Center for Water Resources, Ali Hashim told IraqiNews.com “A wave of water will sweep Tigris River and cause rise in its level in Baghdad but the wave will not cause flood outside the areas close to the River.”
He pointed out that “We took a number of preventive measures in collaboration with the other relevant departments to avert any damages that might occur.”
“The amounts of water that were collected were sent to the reservoirs and dams while the remaining amounts were transferred to Tigris River,” Hashim concluded.
