Sharjah maps water network growth as 18km Hushi line opens
Sewa readies Hushi network in Stage 1, with next phase's 17km line now under construction
Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (Sewa) has completed the construction of an 18km water supply network in the emirate’s Hushi area, with another 17km of main water lines currently under construction by the authority.
The 18km network forms part of Sewa’s Stage 1 plan to boost water distribution across the populous UAE emirate. The Hushi network will provide potable water to 867 residential villas, whilst the 17km Stage 2 line will cover 727 villas.
Sewa revealed it had also completed the installation of a water line between Mohadub and Al Sajaa Oasis. The 5km line has a diameter of 800m.
Chairman of Sewa, Rashid Al Leem, said the authority is working to provide clean water across all parts of Sharjah, in line with the directives of HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah.
According to Leem, Sewa plans to expand Sharjah’s water transmission and distribution networks, as well as upgrade existing facilities, to keep pace “with the urban expansion in different areas”. These projects could see Sewa deploying “the latest international technical specifications” for the production and distribution of water, as well as eco-friendly materials to maintain water quality, according to UAE state news agency, Wam.
