§ KIPA-KIRKUK project is a part of grand-scale irrigation project.

§ The basic purpose of the system is: 1. river regulation, 2. land irrigation, 3. supply drinking water to settlements.

§ The project comprises the irrigation of 100,000 ha of agricultural land. The necessary water is provided by combined concrete arch dam and soil-filled dam. Downstream from the dam a canal was built with the purpose to dewater the accumulation to the distance up to 100 km. Differences of levels were surmounted by a series of pumping stations. By pipes and pumps water is distributed to the nearby fields. The system of pipes was manufactured according to SENTAP technology, under the Swedish licence by the experts of "Dywidag", Germany. The remaining water is used for supply of drinking water to the town of Kirkuk.
