Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has started a project to build a new main water pipeline, made of reinforced fiberglass. This 900mm and 1200mm pipeline will be 17 km long.
"This project is in line with Dubai’s aim to deliver world-class electricity and water services. It is part of the project to improve efficiency and reliability of the water network," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of DEWA.
"The cost of the project will be over Dh96 million and it will take about 24 months to complete. This new water pipeline will extend from the main water pumping station at Al Quoz, passing the Camel Race Course road to Business Bay, between Al Doha Road and Al Khail Road.
"This project will enhance Dewa’s operational capacity to carry water to economically important areas like Business Bay," he said.
