Qatar eyes mega reservoirs kick-off by year-end

Qatar’s major water project ‘The Water Security Mega Reservoirs’ aimed at increasing water storage of the country is expected to be partially commissioned by the end of this year, a top official said.

“One of the five mega reservoirs and pumping stations located at Al Thumama is expected to start pumping water by the end of this year,” Ahmed Naser Al Nasr, head of Technical Affairs Department at Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) was quoted saying by The Peninsula.

 “The project will be commissioned partially this year because, first of all, the pipelines will be laid to supply water then gradually one by one the reservoirs will be commissioned,” he said.

“Al Thumama water reservoir is expected to be partially commissioned by the end of this year and it will be commissioned fully by end next year,” Al Nasr explained.

“We have conducted a survey about groundwater in all over the country. Surface water wells in many areas have potable water and some require minor treatment to make the water consumable by humans,” he added.
