Iraq’s Ministry of Water Resources is looking into deploying desalination plants to treat and reuse the brackish water runoff passing through the huge Main Outfall Drain (MOD) in the middle of the country.
It has issued a request for expressions of interest from potential advisors on a feasibility study, with a deadline of 5th March. At peak times, the MOD currently deposits about 220m3/second (19 million m3/d) of saline water into the Gulf via the Shatt al-Arab river.
