The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority has announced that the water reservoir project in Hatta is 76.8 per cent complete. The project, which has a storage capacity of 30 million imperial gallons (MIG), costs approximately Dhs86m.

It is expected to be completed in April this year.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), recently inspected the site to review the progress of the project.

The project includes the construction of two reservoirs, supporting buildings, and the extension of entrance and exit pipes.

According to DEWA, the structural foundation works for all facilities and reservoirs are 100 per cent complete, while the above-ground works are 85 per cent complete, with nearly 98 per cent of the pipes laid out.

Al Tayer said that the water reservoir in Hatta supports the Comprehensive Development Plan for Hatta by enhancing the efficiency and reliability of the water network, improving the water flow, and increasing the volume of water reserves. This, he said, ensures the sustainability of water resources in line with the Dubai Integrated Water Resource Management Strategy 2030, which focuses on enhancing water resources, using cutting-edge technologies and innovative solutions.

Currently, DEWA is implementing a project to store six billion gallons of water in aquifers that can be retrieved when needed.

The project will provide Dubai with a reserve of over 50 million gallons of desalinated water per day in emergencies for 90 days, ensuring the quality of the stored water remains unaffected by external factors.
