Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Madinah Gov. Prince Faisal bin Salman on Tuesday opened a water treatment project to improve the irrigation sector in the Madinah region. The Saudi Irrigation Organization is working to manage, operate and boost the region’s agricultural sector.

Prince Faisal stressed the need to harness the full potential of the project to ensure availability of water, preserve the environment and farms.

The project will help address the shortage of water for irrigation. It will be implemented in four phases. In the first stage 300 farms will benefit from the project and the second phase will include natural reserve and palm farms in the north of Madinah. The third stage will see the project extended to Abu Park Al-Joud and AL-Bayda Park while in the fourth phase the service will reach Al-Mendesa, Al-Mulelih and other areas.

The project also aims to preserve the strategic wells.
