Saudi's water reuse rising by 30% PA
Efforts to upgrade equipment and reach remote areas see huge expansion
A report by Business Monitor has revealed that Saudi Arabia’s treated water reuse capacity is rising by 30 per cent a year, showing a greater willingness among authorities to prioritise state spending towards critical infrastructure.
The authorities claim that Saudi Arabia’s advanced treated water reuse capacity is growing by 30 per cent a year, expecting to reach 2.2 million cubic metres per day by 2016. Currently capacity is at 260,000 million cubic metres per day, which BMI suggests is an optimistic outlook. The Kingdom is planning upgrades to its water and wastewater pipeline network, and its desalination capacity is also being uprated in an attempt to improve supply and ensure that those not connected to a piped water supply will not have to depend on expensive tankers.
