Dubai Approves $8bn Stormwater Project Development

Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, has approved a AED 30bn ($8.16bn) project to develop Dubai's rainwater drainage network.


Known as Tasreef, the project is expected to enhance the capacity of Dubai’s rainwater drainage system by 700%, covering all areas of the emirate.


"Today, we approved an integrated project to develop Dubai's rainwater drainage network at a cost of AED 30bn. The largest rainwater collection project in a single system in the region, the initiative will increase the capacity of the drainage network in the emirate by 700%, ensuring the emirate's readiness to face future climate-related challenges," Sheikh Mohammed said.


The project will raise the emirate-wide drainage network’s capacity to more than 20 million cubic metres of water a day. It is envisaged to meet Dubai's needs for the next 100 years.


"We have directed the immediate implementation of the project, which will be completed in phases by 2033. Dubai continues to drive infrastructure and urban advancements, enhancing safety and security for everyone living in the emirate," Sheikh Mohammed said.


Dubai Municipality will implement the Tasreef project.


A source familiar with Dubai's infrastructure projects confirmed that the new project is part of the existing multibillion-dollar stormwater project in Dubai.
