The Director General of Isfahan municipality’s Parks and Green Space Organization said, "All the effluents using to irrigate urban green spaces have been disinfected and contain no microbial load."

Iran (IMNA) - "The green space area of Isfahan, which is considered as the heritage and the legacy of the past, is more than four thousand hectares; we should try to preserve them, " Forough Mortezainejhad said.

"Zayandehrud River being dried up and aquifer depletion have led to using wastewater for irrigation purposes; the necessary planning has been performed to take advantage of the treated wastewater, " she added.

"If the effluents reflect a green color or an unpleasant smell, it is due to the fact that the supplementary and secondary treatment have not been completed, " The Director General of Isfahan municipality’s Parks and Green Space Organization continued.
