Makkah needs better water network: Expert


It is imperative to maintain clean water resources and use the best method and state-of-the-art technology to treat sewage water, in view of rapidly rising population and lack of water resources in Makkah.

This has been highlighted in the scheme presented to the Higher Development of Makkah by Mohammad Al-Murshdi, professor of land and water maintenance.

The Holy city requires a better water network to meet future needs, in addition to establishing a sewage network, he said.

Al-Murshdi said Makkah needs to take into account a number of future plans for comprehensive development in fields, including agriculture. “Development in this field has increased in the past two decades. Agricultural expansion has also increased in some areas,” he said.

“The need to ration water has increased because of a rise in demand. On of the best ways to tackle the situation is by reusing treated sewage water for irrigation. Some ground water has been drained, which means it is necessary to use unconventional water resources.”

Al-Murshdi said it is important to be maintain a strict control over operation and maintenance programs for the treatment of sewage water to protect the environment and clean water resources.
