Haya treated water keeps Muscat green
Muscat, July 19, 2011
Residents in Muscat will be able to enjoy a “greener” experience this Ramadan thanks to the efforts of Haya Water in supplying tens of millions of litres of treated water to ensure that the trees, grass and plants of Muscat Parks and other major parks and public areas stay healthy.
This is part of the company’s continued to commitment to work towards helping Muscat to become a much better city for its residents to live in and where commercial companies can prosper in the future.
The treated water supplied from Haya Water’s ongoing project is supplied to Muscat Municipality who use it for all the public gardens and parks they manage in addition to ensuring that the plants and trees on the Sultan Qaboos Highway are kept in the best condition.
In total over 50 million litres of treated water every day is provided for irrigation purposes in the Muscat Municipality area – or the equivalent of enough water to fill 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
Commenting on the impact of Haya Water on the greening of Muscat, company CEO Omar Al Wahaibi said: “The benefits of our project are now helping in a significant way to ensure that Muscat’s open spaces and parks stay green and healthy during Ramadan – a time when so many families will go out together in the evening and want to enjoy the cooler weather together at this very special time of the year.
“Haya Water has developed water re-use project in such a way to ensure that the bulk of the effluent that was treated by our new modern water treatment plants can then be used to help Muscat become greener and cleaner.
“We are able to see for ourselves every day in the green areas of the Muscat Governorate how much of an impact our water re-use system is having – replacing the need for other scarce or expensive water resources to be used for irrigation purposes.”
It will mean an end for most residents of the need for a smelly septic tank and the requirement for a truck to come and take away waste water from private homes and businesses across the whole of Muscat – making life healthier for families and children.
The company is using state of the art Membrane Reactor Technology (MBR) to implement the water re-use system and ensure the highest quality of treated water from the plants that is then suitable for use for a wide range of irrigation purposes – which means the project is of enormous environmental benefit to the whole of Muscat.
As a company Haya Water is fully committed to serving society in Muscat by delivering a world-class water reuse project that produce major benefits to individuals, businesses and communities across the Muscat Governorate. -TradeArabia News Service
