Water Plant In Iraq Gets Upgrade

CNN? MSNBC? cBS? UselessA Today? Hello? Yoo hoo? (from Defend America)

For nearly two years, the Al Wathba Water Treatment Plant has been undergoing a $22 million upgrade to bring more fresh, potable water to Baghdad residents.

That facility serves the Rusafa area in northeast Baghdad with markets, businesses, medical facilities, and about 300,000 residents dependent on its output.

“Al Wathba is over 40 years old and the dilapidated, poorly maintained equipment was producing about 1,000 cubic meters of drinking water per hour,” points out Iraqi project engineer Sadiq with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Gulf Region Central District International Zone office.

“The renovation included state-of-the-art new pumps, pipes, filters, new chlorination system, and new controls for automatic operation. We expanded the plant’s capacity almost 2 ½ times and it is now able to produce 2,400 cubic meters of water per hour. Last week we tested the system and immediately started getting ‘thank you’ calls from area residents who appreciate the increased pressure and quantity of fresh water available in their homes and businesses.”

Can't have the MSM reporting positive stories, you know.

    You can’t have this right. From what I’ve heard or not heard on blogs & the MSM – nothing good is happening in Iraq. It is just a big quagmire. How can progress continue despite the rest of the world? Wow – you may be on to something the rest of the wrold is not privy too. Yep, just being snarky as usual. Good job picking up on good news!

  2. I was reading lots of the military sites, just wasn’t linking them like I should have, what with all the loonacy the left was spewing. But, I have had it with them, and the MSM.

    Now, if only this type of news could make it into the MSM. Sigh.
