Two infrastructure projects worth $20.2m (AED74.2m) have been approved by Abu Dhabi Executive Council.
The developments are part of the Abu Dhabi Plan to further water and energy sustainability in the emirate.
A contract worth $13.4m (AED49.2m) was agreed to be awarded for replacing the water supply network of numerous basins in Abu Dhabi.
The move will enhance the operational efficiency of the network, and meet current and future water needs.

Both projects were approved by a committee chaired by Jassem Bu Ataba Al Zaabi, according to a WAM statement.
