Consistent with SEAL’s many projects installing water
 networks in order to tackle water shortages and inefficient water usage for agriculture throughout the country, this project will ensure irrigation water for farmers through modern networks, avoiding wastage of water, establishing tanks to preserve water, and improving the quality and quantity of produce.

The region is known to be rich in water availability but the farmers have not until now been able to develop the agricultural sector due to the high price of efficient irrigation systems that conserve water and distribute it evenly throughout the year. Farmers suffer during peak season from lack of water, and as part of their saving plans they can only irrigate trees once every 15 days in summer. This negatively affects the trees and produces low quality fruit.

It is worth noting that with the new irrigation system, each dunum (1000m2) will only require 3.5m3 of water on a daily basis during July & August, whereas irrigating orchards using the traditional system requires over 16m3 daily. This leads to water savings of 78%.

The project involves establishing water lakes and tanks in addition to installing pipes, sprinklers, filters, driplines and accessories.

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