Saudi Arabia constructs Biggest Water Treatment Plant in Riyadh
Saudi Arab’s National water supplier has recently finished the construction of largest wastewater treatment plant.
This is a mega project, which cost 400 million-riyal ($107 million) project in Riyadh. This is sixth of its kind in the desert kingdom, which will produce 400,000 cubic meters of treated water a day by the end of the year to serve the growing urban population.
The state-run usefulness is also building the biggest water storage facility in the kingdom’s most populous city at a cost of 1.8 billion riyals.
The Saudi state projects are part of a 51 billion-riyal water-resources investment in cities including the capital, Mecca and port of Jeddah, Chief Executive Officer Luay Al Musallam said last year.
For 2014, the government of the world’s biggest crude exporter had allocated 16.6 billion riyals for desalination projects to boost potable supplies to a population that is quadrupled to 30 million in four decades.
