Saudi Arabia’s National Water Company (NWC) has completed construction work on water reservoirs in the kingdom’s Rafhaa governorate with a total capacity of 54,000m3; the value of the project is $7.2m (SAR27m).

NWC’s general directorate for water services in Saudi Arabia’s northern borders region has been tasked with the utilities project.

Comprising three 18,000m3 strategic reservoirs, the project will provide 2,853 water connections in the governorate, which will be enough to fulfil water needs of more than 15,000 people.

Construction work for the project included building a facility for pumps and one for chlorine, in addition to the installation of 7km of pipework and an area for technicians.

In a statement on its website, NWC said that the project was a part of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030, which aims at achieving water security by investigating people’s needs and setting up projects to meet growing demand.

According to NWC, the facility will serve as an alternative water reservoir during emergencies.

The reservoir will additionally provide a parallel supply to the overhead tank in Al-Rawdah district and Al-Ta'awun district's plant. A direct supply to the water network in the districts of Al-Shamal, Al-Jumaimaa and Al-Yarmouk will also be provided as part of the project.
