OMR 27 million-worth water project to benefit many in Oman

MUSCAT: The Oman Water and Wastewater Services Company has been continuing the remaining technical works of the water supply project in Wilayat Al Hamra of Al Dakhiliyah Governorate

The total cost of this prestigious project is OMR 27 million, the authorities said.

Suleiman bin Khalaf Al Yahyai, Director of Customer Services in Al Dakhiliyah Governorate, said, “The project includes the construction of a main reservoir with a capacity of 18,000 cubic meters, transmission lines of 94 km, an integrated network of 350 km, and 22 stations containing 68 pumps to strengthen water pumping.

He added, “After the completion of all its construction works, about 81,000 residents of the state will benefit from the project, with a distribution capacity of 225 million gallons per day of potable water. The project is expected to be completed in April of next year.”

The company has announced that the completion rate of the project has reached 65 percent. Work is still going on in a number of mountain villages in the state, with the aim of completing the project within the specified time.

The project, after its completion, will provide high-quality water, as many mountainous and plain villages in the state suffer from water scarcity and shortage, especially during drought and interruption of rain.
