Administration of North and East Syria pushing forward with $1.5 million project to help fill Hasakah city’s water needs

HASAKAH, Syria — The Democratic Autonomous Administration (DAA) of North and East Syria issued a statement on Thursday detailing the efforts to transfer water from the Euphrates River in the countryside of Dayro Zcuro (Deir ez-Zor) to the city of Hasakah.

“The project was one of the most prominent sources used by the Autonomous Administration to secure water after the Turkish state cut-off the flow of water from Alouk station in the Ras al-Ayn countryside,” read the statement. “Will work to transfer water from Sour station to Shaddadi station and then to the water station of 47 Area in the Hasakah countryside to the water station of Hema in the city proper.”

The project will serve the residents of Dayro Zcuro and Hasakah and will fulfill between 20% and 25% of Hasakah’s water needs.

According to the statement, the project will cost an estimated $1.5 million and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2021.
