Saudi Arabia's National Water Company (NWC) said it has begun operation of its new wastewater plant in the southern Al Huda district of Jeddah governorate which has been completed at an investment of more than SR72 million ($19 million).

Announcing the launch of operations, NWC Western Sector head engineer Muhammad bin Saleh Al Ghamedi said the company works at an accelerated pace to execute its projects to enhance water and environmental services provided to citizens in the governorate, and to realise the aspirations of the government.

"Services are currently flowing to our customers in the district. The project was completed five months ahead of the schedule," noted Al Ghamedi.

The scope of work included laying of 27-km-long main pipeline and sub-networks connected to 1,500 properties, serving more than 25,000 people, he added.

Meanwhile the NWC said it has provided 2,000 domestic wastewater connections in the Twaiq district in capital Riyadh and was racing ahead to complete the rest of the connections.-TradeArabia News Service
