News ALGERIA: 17 tanks to improve water supply in Aïn Témouchent

While Algeria is facing a drastic decrease in its water resources due to drought, the urgency is now to rationalize the available reserves. In the wilaya of Ain Témouchent, located in northwest Algeria, local authorities are investing in the construction of facilities for the storage of fresh water.

According to Sebaâ Ahmed, head of the department of drinking water supply at the Directorate of Water Resources and Water Security of the wilaya of Ain Témouchent, 11 water tanks with a total capacity of 6750 m3 have recently been commissioned in several municipalities, including Boumediene (1000 m3), El-Amria (500 m3), Ain Témouchent (1000 m3). This council and capital of the eponymous wilaya has also benefited from a pumping station. The town of Aoubellil also has a reservoir of 250 m3. It is the same for the beach of Sidi Djelloul which has a storage capacity of 500 m3.
