Water transfer to dust-storm stricken Khuzestan begins

April 8, 2017

First-Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri travelled to the southwestern province of Khuzestan on Thursday and paid a visit to a project aiming at channeling water from Karun River to the dust storm-stricken areas of the province.

While Khuzestan is suffering from recurrent periods of dust storms, which are originating from dried up wetlands both in Iran and neighboring countries and crippling local residents once in a while, it is believed that the project which is yet to be completed might mitigate the predicament to some extent.
