Haya Water signed an agreement with Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel represented by Ministry of Tourism to manage the wastewater assets of the hotel.
This agreement is a continuation to Haya Water’s efforts to achieve its objectives to build, manage, operate and maintain a modern wastewater system that contributes to the preservation of the environment and prevention from diseases and epidemics through protecting groundwater reservoirs from pollution and to reduce the consumption of fresh water in agricultural, commercial and industrial purposes.
The agreement states that Haya Water shall take over the responsibility of the management, operation and maintenance of all wastewater assets in Al Bustan area except the existing STP. These assets, that are located in the district of Al Bustan Palace Hotel, are owned by Ministry of Tourism.
It is worth mentioning that the wastewater assets in Al Bustan area were constructed in the mid-eighties of the last century in conjunction with the establishment of Al Bustan Palace Hotel and these assets were operated by the hotel itself.
These assets include wastewater network serving nearly 172 houses and governmental and commercial properties in the same area. This network is connected to STP with a capacity of 780m3 per day and several pumping stations.
Due the cumulative experience of Haya Water in the field of wastewater, all parties agreed that it is very crucial for Haya to take over these assets.
Haya Water, due to many health and social considerations, has committed to provide maintenance services for the network and pumping stations in Al Bustan area in case the residents reported any cases of sewage overflow even though the management of the wastewater assets in this area belongs to Ministry of Tourism and not Haya Water.
It should be also noted that such cooperation between Haya Water and the citizens and various governmental and private authorities is yet a clear evident that the company is committed to implement its vision and mission to make Oman greener and healthier.
The management of Al Bustan Palace Hotel, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel applauded the signing of the agreement which will contribute to improve the performance of the wastewater network in the area.
