70% of Afghanistan’s Waters Are Wasted

If water is controlled, Afghanistan will be self-sufficient
in agriculture and electricity generation

The Ministry of Energy and Water says that if Afghanistan’s
waters are contained, Afghanistan will be self-sufficient in agriculture and
electricity generation.

Mujibur Rehman Omar, Deputy Minister of Energy and Water,
said in a press conference yesterday that 70% of the country’s water will be
lost, and if this water is controlled, Afghanistan will be self-sufficient in
agriculture and electricity generation.

The Deputy Minister of Energy added that the leadership of
this ministry is trying to control and manage Afghanistan’s water.

Omar called the use of groundwater crucial, especially in
Kabul, and called on people to use groundwater safely.

According to him, to supply water in Kabul and strengthen
groundwater, it intends to build a canal on the Shah and Arous dam or the
Panjshir Sea.

Omar announced the completion of the construction of Shah
and Arous dam in the near future and said that in order to better manage water
affairs, the country’s water basins have been divided into five basins.
