Saudi Arabia’s National Water Company has announced plans to spend more than US $1.1 billion developing Jeddah’s water and sewage network. Work is set to take place across the older parts of the city and will include the installation of larger diameter lines to increase water intake capacity, as well the installation of new pumping stations, modern carrier lines and new household connections.

Work on the northern region of the city is scheduled to start in the middle of next year and will continue into 2016. The project will involve supplying and installing sub networks for sanitation, and will require digging around 252km of tunnels. The company is also installing a pumping station and carrier line to the wastewater treatment plant, which is aiming to come online by the end of 2015. A three-way sewage treatment plant is also planned for the far-north region of the city, with a capacity of one million cubic metres per day.

Areas of Jeddah – in the south of the city –are currently not covered by existing sewage services, and NWC is aiming to bring these regions to the network with new main and sub-line sewage links, together with a three-way treatment plant and individual household sewage connections.

I think due to increasing water pollution everyone should be aware of the importance of water treatment. Whether it is on a local level or Industrial level. I think if industries properly handle their waste water, we can solve many water pollution problems. Should be helpful in this regard.
