The Ain al-Fijah pumping station, which provides Damascus with drinking water, is operating at full capacity, said Azzam Dagoz, the chief engineer of the station, on August 13, TASS reports.
The station pumps 400 thousand cubic meters of water per day, said Azzam Dagoz. This almost fully covers the needs of Damascus residents, as well as 20% of its suburbs.
Ain al-Fijah’s liberation from the militants was possible only earlier this year. Until then, the militants demanded money for the supply of water to the capital, said Azzam Dagoz.
Syria Arab Republic (SAR) reconstructed 277 kilometers of roads, laid more than 200 kilometers of power lines with Russian help. More than 70 water supply facilities have been restored or rebuilt.
