12:28 pm
assessments before building dams and piping water around the country one solution has been to try using less water for things like these but most of iran's water is used on farms where old ways of watering crops means waste on an industrial scale environmental experts also say the government needs to take the problem more seriously. first we need to revise some laws and adopt the procedure for the stable development and management of water resources so we can better preserve water and control usage so we can be hopeful to have better conditions in the next one or two decades even by summer standards these river beds in the north of the capital are drier than usual that's being felt downstream where they feed ancient underground springs. from up here you can really get a sense of the impact of the country's water shortage on public facilities in just twenty years a single generation what was once a sizable body of water has been reduced to little more than
