The staffs of the Engineering Projects Division of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine have tightened their control over the rising of the water table and maintaining certain proportions of it, by relying on scientific methods.
And the head of the Engineering Projects Department, Professor Eng. Dia Al-Sa'egh explained to the al-Kafeel Website, saying: “The Al-Saqi project depends on (52) important vital wells through which the project is supplied with water.”
Al-Sa'egh added in his interview: “The control of groundwater extracted from wells required us to take a set of precautionary measures that help us know the level of water and its quantities, in order to preserve this natural wealth rich in positive returns at the level of the agricultural side.”
He explained that: “The Engineering Projects Department of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine performs the inspection mechanism by allocating one of the wells in the project and conducting an examination on it, in cooperation with the Directorate of Wells in the Karbala Governorate, which in turn conducts periodic checks to measure the level of the groundwater with rainfall and its varied quantities, which reflects significantly on this vital and important aspect. "
Al-Sa'egh continued: "We have achieved good and encouraging results in maintaining and controlling the water level, in order to avoid its rise and thus lead to negative results."
The Al-Saqi agricultural project, west of the holy city of Karbala, is considered one of the pioneering projects adopted by the Engineering Projects Department at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine. This project focuses mainly on the groundwater found in the ground.
