KUWAIT CITY, Feb 15: The Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR) has warned farms that contain “sparkling wells” in the Wafra farming area to amend their violating conditions in order to avoid the legal measures that are taken against violators, reports Al-Rai daily.
Informed sources said, “The plant resources sector in PAAAFR issued warnings to farms whose owners deliberately withdraw water from bubbling wells to benefit from it, and divert more of that water outside the farms, which leads to the destruction of the infrastructure, in addition to the damages caused by this water when it spills in the nearby productive farms.
Complaints were received by PAAAFR about the formation of lakes in some roads of Wafra farms due to the exploitation of those violating wells by some.
With the cooperation of the Ministry of Electricity and Water and the Ministry of Public Works, some farms have been identified. Warnings have been issued to them to stop withdrawals from the wells and close them immediately.
Maintenance of roads damaged by this water will continue. The depressions in some roads will be rectified by laying pipes to withdraw water to a distance of two kilometers, where the water withdrawn from the low streets is collected to make a lake that will be treated according to a scientific mechanism under the supervision of the Ministry of Public Works.
The authority will stop the transactions of violating farms and the support provided to their owners in the event that they do not amend their legal status during the warning period.”
