      Ministry of Environment revealed Wednesday a new project to benefit from sewage water in the capital, Baghdad.
    The Director-General of the Technical Department in the Ministry of Environment, Issa Al-Fayyad, told the Iraqi News Agency (INA): "Most of the sewage is dumped into the rivers of the capital, Baghdad without treatment, and we approached the Baghdad Municipality, but the latter made it clear that it needs large sums of money as well as plots of land in order to carry out projects to address this.
    He added, "There is a project within the scope of Al-Mansour Municipality to make use of sewage after treating it for watering fruit trees," describing that "this step is a good move if implemented."
