Asira Al-Qibliya, West Bank – On Tuesday, September 9th, the Palestinian Authority and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), celebrated the completion of the Southwest Nablus Villages Water Supply Project.  USAID invested $7.4 million in this project to improve the water supply and quality to more than 8,500 citizens in the villages of Asira Al-Qibliya, Madama and Urif, for the first time.

Nablus Governor Akram Rajoub; Palestinian Water Authority Head Minister Mazen Ghuneim; USAID West Bank and Gaza Mission Director Dave Harden; heads of the municipal councils; and community representatives were present at the inauguration.

As a result of this project, residents of the three villages now have access to piped water for the first time, at a price significantly lower than what they have been paying for tankered water.  The water comes from a secure source that is tested, and its quality is significantly higher than tankered water.
