Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (Sewa) is developing a comprehensive plan to ensure the provision and continuity of water supplies for the emirate's residents on par with the highest levels of availability, reliability and quality, said its top official.
The water networks extend for more than 3,500 km in Sharjah and production reaches 110 million gallons per day across the emirate including 90 million gallons in the city.
"The authority is making great efforts to produce and desalinate water and distribute it to subscribers, as well as to educate them about the importance of water conservation and optimal use, as well as about remaining at home, except in cases of emergencies, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus," stated Chairman Dr Rashid Al Leem.
"We are taking all efforts to strengthen the delivery of water, and distribution networks in all regions of Sharjah, and provide water supplies," he said.
A work plan has been prepared for engineers and technical staff that work at water production and desalination plants and line maintenance, as their work requires them to be present at the stations, he added.
