About the entity

The President of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi, unveiled on Thursday, 16 water and wastewater management initiatives valued at 170 trillion rials (equivalent to approximately $340 million) in Tehran, Tehran Times informs.

Among the unveiled projects are three water treatment facilities and five drinking water transmission networks, underscoring the government's concerted effort to bolster the nation's water infrastructure.

On the sidelines of the ceremony, 14 contracts with private enterprises were also signed, totalling 190 trillion rials (roughly $380 million). These agreements aim to revamp the country's wastewater infrastructure, heralding a new era of sustainability and efficiency.

These contracts are poised to transform wastewater management across seven provinces, including Sistan-Baluchistan, Qom, East Azarbaijan, Isfahan, Markazi, Semnan, and Fars.

This ambitious undertaking follows closely on the heels of earlier announcements. In March, Abasali Moserzadeh, the managing director of the Water and Sewerage Department of Tehran Province, revealed plans for wastewater projects valued at 120 trillion rials (approximately $240 million) set to be operational imminently.

These projects encompass a spectrum of initiatives, from the establishment of a cutting-edge monitoring center for building control to the implementation of advanced wastewater monitoring and control mechanisms. Additionally, the construction of Tehran's largest sewage relief post building and the third-largest biomass power plant further underscore the city's commitment to pioneering sustainable solutions.
