The Ministry has been making continuous efforts in developing the water facilities built along the Nile and its branches to make the optimal use of the water resources needed to achieve a sustainable development.

In light of this, the Minister of Water Resources and Irrigation, Dr. Mohamed Nasr El-Deen Allam, has said that the final arrangements have been made regarding signing the African Development Bank’s 2 million euro grant.

Preparations are underway and are intended to formulate a general plan for the main hydraulic facilities on the Nile, ryahat and main canals in Egypt for the replacement, rehabilitation and strengthening of over two hundred facilities within a time frame extending to 2050.

The Ministry is about to complete the construction of Al-Rayah Al-Tawfiqy’s new head regulator and lock in next February with a total cost of nearly 43 million Egyptian pounds, where the project implementation percent is 94 percent.

Dr. Allam indicated that a number of meetings were conducted with representatives from the German Construction Bank and the project’s consultants to discuss the replacement and strengthening of Al-Ibrahimiya Canal head regulator.

The latest developments regarding the current status of the feasibility study of Deirot barrages executed by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency were also reviewed.
