Construction works for a wastewater treatment plant, worth $95,290 (AED350,000), have been completed in the UAE's Umm Al Quwain emirate.

Situated in Al Shas, the facility has a production capacity of 15,000 gallons per day. 

The Saud bin Rashid Al Mu’alla Foundation for Charitable and Humanitarian Works, and the Umm Al Quwain Public Works and Services Department, developed the project.
