Lack of planning, corruption in government services, neglect of concerns and the payment of poor quality land to the poor, inadequate training of safe handling methods, and irrigation and plant management for men and women contribute to poor water quality. Money is an important factor in improving these areas, but if corruption is eliminated and inter-departmental communication improves, stricter rules and enforcement can be applied immediately. It is recommended that the number of water user associations be increased and a chain of communication be established between them and government authorities. The designation of field supervisors in designated areas for monitoring SEAs and training farmers on irrigation methods (such as drip irrigation, which can apply water to the root zone and reduce water consumption by 30 to 60 percent), ensure effective distribution of water during the harvesting cycle, assolement and soil management. Foreign service chiefs can also monitor water levels, check pump maintenance and report drainage structures. At present, it is difficult to establish a reliable estimate of the relative shares that Egypt and Sudan need for the water needed to build the other “Nile Control” structures to provide water, but it is recognized that Sudan will participate in the water from these springs when the time comes. The Sudanese government is then asked to pay an appropriate share of the cost of the new work, which is proportional to the amount of water consumed. ALEXANDRIA, Egypt (Reuters) – Water ministers from the Nile basin countries will meet July 27-28 in Alexandria, Egypt, to discuss cooperation and a successful framework agreement on the Nile River. While most of the river`s water quality is in acceptable values, there are several hotspots, most of which are found in irrigation canals and drainages. The sources of pollution come from agricultural, industrial and household waste. There are 36 industries that dump their sources of pollution directly into the Nile and 41 into irrigation canals. These types of industries are: chemistry, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, fertilizers, food, metal, mining, oil and soap, pulp and paper, fire, textiles and wood.
