Construction work is progressing on the 30 million imperial gallons (MIG) water reservoir project, which is being developed by the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) in Hatta, UAE.

The value of this project is estimated at around Dh86m ($23.4m).

The project, which is now 89.42% complete, is anticipated to fully conclude in the fourth quarter of this year.

It encompasses the development of two reservoirs that feature a storage capacity of 30 million gallons of desalinated water. The project also includes the installation of supporting structures and the extension of entrance and exit pipelines.

According to DEWA, the aboveground construction is 92% complete, the laying of around 99% of the pipes, and the structural foundation work for all facilities and reservoirs is fully complete.

DEWA MD and CEO Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said: “The water reservoirs that DEWA is building across Dubai support the Dubai Integrated Water Resource Management Strategy 2030, and the UAE Water Security Strategy 2036.
