On Thursday, an engineer in the project of extracting Euphrates River water from the Deir ez-Zor countryside to the city of Hasakah said that in order to meet the needs of residents and to put an end to the abuses that affect the pipelines, there will be five fountains along the line.

Five fountains will be installed along the water line from Markada district to al-Arisha district, engineer, Waryan Muhammad, told North Press.

Early in 2021, Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (AANES) began the project to draw the Euphrates River water form al-Suwar station in the countryside of Deir ez-Zor to Hasakah.

The project included drawing water to the Shaddadi water station then to the region 47 station reaching the al-Aziziyah station in Hasakah.

A part of these fountains has been completed, with the aim of providing water to the population by transporting it through tankers, and in order not to damage and break the main lines, said Muhammad.

He pointed out that the water pumped in the fountains is undrinkable and it needs filters and chlorine and all of these requirements will be available in the coming days.

The project of drawing Euphrates water from the countryside of Deir ez-Zor to Hasakah is about to be completed, and nothing left but repairing fractures and blockages in the line connecting the 47 station and al-Aziziyah station in Hasakah.
