Bahrain: New plan to tackle water shortages

BAHRAIN is exploring the possibility of creating underground reservoirs as a way of tackling water shortages. If given the go-ahead they would hold surplus treated waste water to be used for irrigation. Environmental experts have already conducted a small scale study to assess the health risks of storing treated waste water and are now proposing to hold a pilot study in the field.The proposal will be put forward in the Second National Communication on Climate Change that will be submitted to the United Nations next month.
