Basrah gets new fresh water source
BASRAH, Iraq (Nov. 9, 2008) — Two million Basrah residents will soon have a more dependable source of household water for cleaning, cooking, bathing, and washing.
A $5 million project, scheduled to complete next summer, will connect permanent power to the Sweetwater Canal Pump Station No. 2. About 70 Iraqis are on the crew installing a new switch gear room, two five-megavolt amp transformers and two new 1.5-megavolt back?up generators.
