GCC drinking water network urged
Jeddah, September 4, 2012
A common water network linking all GCC countries to prevent water shortages has been recommended by a study commissioned by the GCC.
The study also proposed two network models – one for regular demand and a separate model for emergency situations, according to a report in Arab News.
Demand for drinking water in the GCC is set to hit 11.9 million cu m per day by 2025, the report said.
