SEVENTY per cent of the work on the South Alba Sewage Water Treatment Plant Project has been completed, it was announced yesterday.
The GDN reported in March last year that the BD5.4 million project was in line with the Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Ministry’s aim of providing a non-conventional water supply source by reusing groundwater.
The plant is part of initiatives under the Government Action Plan (GAP) and Economic Vision 2030.
The plant’s capacity has raised from 900 cubic metres to 2,500cu m per day with the possibility of further raising it to 4,000cu m.
All the buildings and facilities in the industrial zone south of Alba will be connected to the plant.
Ministry planning and sewage projects director Nozha Abu Hindi said treated water would be reused in agriculture, gardening and watering green spaces along roads.
