Red-Dead project feasible: WB
- Jordan: Tuesday, January 15 - 2013 at 06:20
The World Bank has said the Red Sea-Dead Sea Water Conveyance Project is feasible, despite the manageable social and environmental effects, Jordan Times has reported. The proposed project is part of international efforts to save the Dead Sea, which has been shrinking at the rate of one metre per year, largely due to the diversion of water from the Jordan River for agricultural and industrial use. Initial plans for the Red-Dead project, which includes Jordan, Palestine and Israel, propose pumping one billion cubic metres of water annually from the Red Sea into the rapidly shrinking Dead Sea to stop its depletion. The estimated full capital cost of the recommended project configuration is $9.97bn, excluding the potable water transmission system to Israel and Palestine, according to the World Bank's feasibility study.
