The European Union (EU) will fund drinking water and drainage projects worth 71.5 million euros in the Upper Egyptian governorate of Sohag to improve services to citizens.

In a statement, board chairman and the managing director of the Holding Company for Water and Wastewater in Sohag Mohamed Badri said drinking water projects will be financed by 23.2 million euros while 48.3 million euros will be spent on drainage projects.

After making a contract with a consultancy office to study proposed projects and their cost, a final list of the projects was approved mid January, he added.

The projects will take 30 months to see daylight starting from the day work was initiated, he said.
