Ajman Sewerage, a government venture, in partnership with leading international water treatment experts Besix and Veolia has started work on Phase Three of its foul drainage and wastewater collection project at the Humaideya Sector 1 in the northern emirate.
The scope of work includes laying of a complex drainage and wastewater collection network that will connect to Jurf 2 commercial network and provide sewerage services to residential and commercial properties in the area. The network will also include over 525 manholes, said the company in a statement.
The AED55 million ($15 million) project, which will serve 2,500 properties, comes against the backdrop of a steadily rising population, which recorded a 1.85 per cent increase in 2019.
The new pipeline, which is part of the Ajman company’s long-term network expansion master plan, will see over 60 km of pipeline added to its expansive system, which will serve both residential and commercial customers in the area, it stated.
On the key project, Chairman Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi said: "The Ajman Sewerage System Humaideya 1 project is timely as it comes when the region is transitioning to a new normal that might eventually lead to a surge in demand for connection."
"This network expansion project will, therefore, ensure that we have the adequate capacity not just to serve every customer but to offer reliable and steady service," he noted.
The new foul drainage and collect wastewater network is expected to be completed by Q1 of 2022, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
