Baghdad Governor Abdul-Mahdi al-Alawi revealed on Sunday that major stormwater drainage projects would be announced for the Iraqi capital soon.

Al-Alawi told the official Iraqi News Agency (INA) that contracts for some of these projects have been signed and will be overseen by the Prime Minister’s Office.

He didn’t name the projects or their costs but said they will address excess rainwater and runoffs on roads during the rainy season and also cater to residential complexes.
