2014-02-07 18:50:02 - Iran Water Report Q1 2014 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Our forecasts have been revised over the past quarter as both extraction and consumption levels have risen beyond previous expectations. With a continually increasing population and a growing agricultural industry there will be more strain than ever on the country´s limited water supplies. Increasing drought conditions and vulnerable groundwater reserves are spurring on the government in its efforts to improve existing infrastructure As drought conditions in Iran become increasingly common and water consumption continues to rise in all sectors, the pressure on Iran´s groundwater supplies is beginning to cause irreparable damage. With illegal extraction and overuse the supplies are not being given the chance to replenish and are thus at risk of becoming permanently dry or contaminated. The country´s flourishing
dam-building industry is attempting to reduce the pressure on groundwater supplies but even this will not be enough to cope with the needs of an expanding agricultural sector and a rising population. The number of wastewater treatment facilities is increasing as the country focuses on improving water quality and preserving fresh supplies. However, with 92% of the Country´s water being used by the agricultural industry, the practice of cultivating highly waterintensive crops that are dependent on irrigation means that a re-think of agricultural practices could have a more beneficial effect on water usage than simply increasing wastewater treatment.
