Iraq officials plan rehabilitation of Baghdad’s water network

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Local Governance Program (LGP) staff and the Baghdad Mayoralty continue to plan the further rehabilitation of the city’s water network. The approach proposes a comprehensive analysis of water loss, repairs and maintenance, a water network survey, a computerized Network Information System and an enhanced water control service. Future work will be conducted based on information processed through the Mayoralty’s GIS.

LGP specialists began data analysis and will conduct analysis training for water treatment department staff. To this end, LGP also delivered more than 200 publications to the technical training center at the Mayoralty’s Water and Sewage Department and installed 50 computers for the Baghdad governorate Water and Sewage offices.
