Haya Water to irrigate Ghala Golf Club
Muscat, December 13, 2011
Haya Water will provide millions of gallons of treated water to help with irrigation of the Ghala Golf Club facility, as the company continues to add to its customer base for its water reuse product across the Muscat area.
Golf courses are already among the biggest consumers of treated effluent produced by Haya Water as a wholly beneficial product of the company’s ongoing water reuse project that will provide a state-of-the-art system for home owners and businesses in the Muscat Governorate area.
The treated effluent is an environmentally friendly and highly cost-effective solution to large scale water users who otherwise have to depend on desalinated water or potentially deplete existing groundwater supplies, a statement from the company said.
By using treated effluent, golf courses are able to make a significant and positive contribution to the environment and work with Haya Water to help the company achieve its long-term objective of making Muscat a better city.
The effluent will be provided to Ghala Golf Club via a 6km pipeline from Haya Water’s Al Ansab treatment plant that uses ground breaking technology including what is considered to be the largest submerged membrane bioreactor treatment plant that came into operation early in 2011.
The connection line to the club will also provide Haya Water with a valuable connection point to supply treated effluent to customers along the Muscat Expressway, the statement said.
The company’s massive water reuse project is now well underway and will be one of the biggest infrastructure developments of its kind and complexity in the Gulf region and one of the largest construction and development projects undertaken in the Sultanate.
Thousands of kilometres of pipeline has already been laid to connect homes and businesses to the new network that will replace the old septic tank system that is currently used by most properties in Muscat.
By the end of 2011, an estimated 20 per cent of properties within Muscat Governorate will have been connected to the new system, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
