Haya Water, a major government-owned water reuse company in Oman, is set to start work on its sewage treatment plant (STP) in the Liwa region by the end of this year, said a report.
The company is presently evaluating the bids for the construction of the plant, which will boast a capacity of 10,000 cu m per day, reported Oman Observer.
Liwa STP, which is likely to be completed in two years, will add a great value to the area by protecting groundwater, enhancing public health, preserving the environment and providing treated wastewater for plantation, productive agriculture and other industrial and commercial purposes, said the report, citing a senior official.
The project will also include the establishment of an irrigation network with a total length of about 63 km. This network will be utilised for irrigation and other commercial and industrial usages, stated Said bin Rashid Al Asmi, the projects general manager in Haya Water.
As per the agreement signed with the Ministry of Regional Municipalities and Water Resources in July last year, Haya Water will be responsible for the management, operation, maintenance and supervision of all wastewater facilities in the governorates of Oman except Dhofar.
The signing of the deal marked Haya’s first steps outside its core franchise in the capital city of Muscat.
The company has also floated consultancy service tenders for constructing wastewater networks and STPs in Daba and Mad’ha areas in the Governorate of Musandam.
