Longest Water Pipeline Being Built in Turkey, Zaman Says

April 4 (Bloomberg) -- Turkey is working to finish a 9,300-kilometer (5,800-mile) water pipeline in the Harran Plain that when done later this year will be the world’s longest, the Today’s Zaman newspaper reported.

The pipeline in southeastern Turkey, most of it installed 1.6 meters (5.2 feet) underground, is part of the 200 million-lira ($111 million) Harran Plain Closed Drainage Project, the paper said, citing Gursel Kusek, an official from the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Animal Husbandry.

Kusek told the paper that the project is taking place to help address high levels of total dissolved solids in the shallow groundwater due to logging, irrigation, rising water tables and drainage problems.
