The Municipality has undergone during the last eighteen years term (06-1998 till 06-2002), the following projects:

Due to the vital role of water in improving life standards, the Municipality has dealt with the water issues and problems as priority. In this direction, it has achieved the following works:


  • Collecting the water at source-1 (the oldest) and source-2 (Nabeh el Metni).

  • Finding new water resources near old sources that has never been exploited before. A room including a small reservoir has been built to store and collect the new quantities.
  • Replacing the old 1 inch pipes from source-1 to source-2 by a 3 inches pipes, in order to increase the water inflow.
  • Strengthening the source-2, which is very important, to benefit from the new water inflow, before dragging the water to the village reservoirs.
  • Installing a new polyethylene pipes with a length of 2400mtr and a diameter of 75mm, from source-2 to the village reservoirs, thus increasing the old inflow from barely 4,5 inches to 8 inches actually.
  • Renovating and replacing all pipes within the village, whenever the need arise.
  • To secure a permanent and lasting water resources, a well has been digged, with the help of the Embassy of Japan in Lebanon.
  • N.B. all water works are being implemented after consultation, advises and instructions of water specialists.

Due to a population growth rate, it has become a must to increase the old water storage capacity of 85 m³ to at least 160 m³, in order to cover the normal village needs. In 2006 the Municipality has added a new reservoir with a capacity of 450m3, thus increasing the storage facility. The first phase of the project was built on a land offered by Mr. Khaled Hosneldine, while the big cement reservoir was built on a land offered by Mr. Walid Beik Joumblatt. A water well was digged as well to secure continuous flow of water in needed dry season near Ain Merched.
