The Taliban Ministry of Energy and Water announced the launch of the Tori dam project in the southern Afghan province of Zabul and said that the dam construction work has officially started.

According to Taliban officials, construction on the Tori Dam, which will cost 97 million Afghanis to build, has begun in the province of Zabul.

The dam will be constructed with a storage capacity of 2.9 million cubic meters, which will be used to irrigate 600 hectares of land and generate 100 kilowatts of electricity, Taliban energy and water officials said.

At the project’s opening, Mullah Abdul Latif Mansoor, the Taliban Acting Minister of Water and Energy, referred to the Taliban officials as the people of Afghanistan’s “faithful servants” and reiterated their commitment to offering “honest” services.

According to officials of the ministry, after the construction of this dam, large projects will be left to be carried out by domestic firms using funds from the national development company.

The dam will benefit the people of Zabul with water regulation, irrigation, and electricity generation after the construction work is completed in nine months.

The construction plan and design for this dam, which is four kilometers east of the Zabul center, Qalat, were made by national engineers.

Before the Taliban took over, the former president of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, had also called for the construction of the Tori dam to control the country’s waters.
