United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) office said in a press statement that networks have been repaired, public infrastructure has been reopened. 

It added that thousands of citizens, mostly from poor families, have worked in the public programs, helping rebuild the city.  

A year after liberating Fallujah, the process of restoring stability is going perfectly and local economy is flourishing, UNAMI office noted. 

It pointed out that hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have returned to their homes, adding that basic services have been restored, including water and electricity.  

In 2014, Fallujah was captured by ISIS and suffered major population loss. In May 2016, Iraqi forces announced the beginning of their attempt to retake the city from ISIS' grip. In June 2016, the city was declared fully liberated by the Iraqi army.
