Impact
Increase in arable land of 200,000 square meters

This project was divided into two parts: a first one designed to benefit from water from the "Al Assi" spring, through the construction of 6" pipes over a distance of 400 meters; and a second part designed to benefit from water from the "El Jouayzet" spring. In this second part, 4" pipes needed to be built over 450 meters, along with 150 meters of cement canals.

The main goals of the project included: preventing the waste of large quantities of water; expanding the capacity of the surrounding agricultural land; drastically reducing the water blockages caused by storms and mud slides; ensuring that water was distributed equally; and shortening the time that it took for the water to get to the land that required irrigation.

In total 33 families benefited from the proper irrigation of over 200,000 square meters of agricultural land.

This project is a part of SEAL’s IRRIGATION NETWORK program, which digs wells and installs irrigation systems throughout Lebanon.
