The Sharjah Electricity, Water and Gas Authority (SEWA) has completed 50 per cent of the project to extend a strategic line to transfer water from Al Rahmaniya to Al Azra, to enhance the efficiency of the network and regulate water pressure, as well as serve all the areas that it passes through, especially the Sustainable City next to Al Rahmaniyah and Um Faneen Area.
Engineer Essam Al Mulla, Director of the Water Department, said the new project is a major step towards enhancing the ability of the SEWA to provide clean water to the emirate's residents in a sustainable manner.
SEWA's strategy, he stated, was to develop water projects and their sustainability through expansions and ambitious development projects to keep pace with the emirate's comprehensive development process.
SEWA follows the latest technical specifications in the production and distribution of water, said Al Mulla, adding that the authority is keen to use environmentally friendly materials that maintain quality in the implementation of the water network.
The AED20.21 million ($5.4 million) project will see the extension of a pipeline running 12 km long and with a diameter of 600 mm.
Work on the project began last year and is expected to be complete in March 2022, including various construction works, he added.
