The Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture (MEWA) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has undertaken a study on Drinking Water Quality Improvement Program in the eastern province, in partnership with the Global Advisory MWH, which aimed at resolving the issue of increasing salinity of drinking water supplies. In this regard, the Ministry intends to launch several projects to improve water distribution networks in the following six cities of the eastern province: Khobar, Dammam, Qatif, Jubail, AlAhsa and Abqaiq.
The Program has been developed to enhance the delivery of drinking water both in terms of quality and quantity, and it is comprised of multiple projects to be launched soon in each city, such projects include:
• The construction of new large and medium sized water tanks and pumping stations, as well as extending main transmission lines to connect the new water sources with the water tanks in order improve and promote the available water storage within the cities according to international standards.
• The extension of water networks through which water is distributed to areas in which saltwater is currently supplied to reduce salinity and improve the distribution of water in the cities.
The total capital budget of all projects to be implemented in the six cities is around SAR 5 billion (US $ 1.34 billion).
The Ministry is seeking participation of qualified local and international contractors to be part of this Program using the “Design-Build” approach. Interested contractors are invited to participate in the workshop, as they have to take the necessary measures to be qualified by registering their companies in the commercial register of the Ministry of Commerce in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
MEWA would like to invite local and international contractors to a workshop on Drinking Water Quality Improvement Program.
