Saudi Arabia’s National Water Company (NWC) has signed a contract for the implementation of a wastewater project in the Madinah region, costing more than SAR150 million (USD40 million).
The project will lay 7,775 meters of main pipelines with diameters between 1,200 and 2,200 mm.
Eng Ayman Y. Yamani, NWC North-west Cluster Senior General Manager, said that the project is to serve the districts in north and north-west Madinah region including King Fahad, Airport, Al-Duwaikhlah and Al-Shafiyah districts. It will also serve southern districts including Al-Ranonaa, Al-Jabrah and Bani Bayadah.
Eng Ayman Y. Yamani commented:
“The project would serve 60,000 people and increase the amount of wastewater received by the wastewater treatment plant in Madinah from 100,000 to 120,000 cubic meters a day. The company is committed to completing all projects and connecting water and wastewater services to the residential districts in Madinah region and its governorates.”
Yamani concluded that the project would enable the General Directorate for Water Services in Madinah to address environmental damages currently afflicting many districts.
