Dam reconstruction will include upgrade of specialized maintenance
equipment, seismic monitors, materials and spare parts.


By Gulf Region Division
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers BAGHDAD, Iraq, Sept. 9, 2005 — Stabilization of the Mosul Dam continues with an additional $20 million in Iraq Reconstruction and Relief Funds allocated this week for that purpose. The Iraq Ministry of Water Resources and the Ministry of Electricity have made the dam a top priority for the region.

The largest dam in Iraq, Mosul earthen dam holds back upwards of 12 billion cubic meters of water for the arid western Ninewah Province while creating hydroelectric power for the 1.7 million residents of Mosul. This reconstruction project includes an upgrade of specialized maintenance equipment, seismic monitors, materials and spare parts. A training element is included with the aid package, which will help make the project self-sustaining in the future.

Completed in 1983, the dam has required maintenance to plug or “grout” areas of leakage on a regular basis. Without this needed work, the dam could develop problems over time with the possibility of a catastrophic failure. An event of this magnitude would be profound, devastating the rich agricultural valley of the Tigris and endangering the population of Mosul.

New automatic grout-injection equipment included in the project will help arrest seepage under the dam. Seismic equipment will provide information to monitor the dam’s stability. Both types of work are critical in continuing flood protection, irrigating farmland, and maintaining sufficient water to generate 320 MW of electricity.

An Iraqi contractor has been selected for this important work as part of an effort to encourage local economic development and jobs. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will provide engineering and quality-control oversight from Gulf Region North near the city of Mosul. The project is scheduled for completion in early 2006.

At the time of transfer of sovereignty in June 2004 to the Iraqi Interim Government, there were just over 200 reconstruction projects started in Iraq. Today 2,827 projects have started - valued at about $6.6 billion. Currently 1,099 projects are ongoing at a program value of about $ 4.6 billion, and 1,728 projects are completed - valued at about $2 billion.

B: Yeah, right, evacuate 25 million Iraqis 'for one week' - you're having a really interesting dream there man!  If you're so concerned about Iraqis, why don't you lecture AQ about slaughtering innocent Iraqis or decry the days of Saddam when 2 million plus were slaughtered by his bloody hands..?

Yeah, who broke it is right - you don't think it had to do with the neglect of Saddam of his people?  Of course it did...Saddam didn't give a rat's behind about Iraqis...but you wanted to happily maintain him in power against the 'evil Amereekans' - wow, Sasha, you are so benevolent in your 'dictatorships'...

Uh huh...what do you think 9/11 was about if not touching the 'inner issues' of other countries?  I guess you (whoever 'you' are) are not so pure as you're positing?

One thing to know about 9/11 - innocent people had to dive out of the 100th floor of buildings to escape the incredible heat ball inferno that the murderers created...this is an incredibly heinous fate...what did they do to deserve such a fate?  Fall into the wrong column of the AQ handbook...problem is 99% of the 6.5 billion people on our planet fall into that 'wrong column' and in AQ's view that column should be DEAD.

Talk about blood on white pages man...
