The Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture has postponed the workshop on "Drinking Water Quality Improvement" Program in Eastern Province to be held on Monday, July 2, 2018. The Ministry, in partnership with the Global Advisory MWH, has studied the program of improving the quality of drinking water in the Eastern Province in order to solve the the problem of increasing salinity of drinking water supplies. Accordingly, The Ministry intends to propose several projects using the “Design-Build” approach to develop water distribution networks and assets in six cities of the Eastern Province: Khobar, Dammam, Qatif, Jubail, AlAhsa and Abqaiq.
The Drinking Water Quality Improvement Program consists of projects that will soon be launched. These projects include the construction of large and medium-sized water tanks ,to improve operational storage levels, and pumping stations, the extension of main transmission lines to connect new water sources with water tanks in the cities, as well as the extension of water distribution networks through which water is distributed to areas in which saltwater is currently supplied. The total budget allocated to the various projects to be implemented within 5 years (2018-2022) in the six cities is approximately SAR 5 billion (US $ 1.34 billion).
The Ministry is looking forward to the participation of qualified international and local contractors to be part of this Program. The Ministry also urges the contractors interested to participate 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.
