Saudi Arabia’s National Water Company (NWC) has completed seven environmental and water projects worth $77.4m (SAR291m) in the governorate of Jeddah to serve the people in the region.
These include six projects to complete infrastructure networks for sewage or surface runoff using sewers, as well as connecting homes to the networks.
The firm has delivered the service to 14 neighborhoods, including the Bin Hamad Plan neighborhood, Old Makkah Al Mukarramah Road neighborhood, Al Fayhaa neighborhood, Al Worood neighborhood, Al-Thaghr neighborhood, and the Azizia neighborhood, among others.
More than 5,000 properties have been connected to the public networks in these neighborhoods, according to the state-run Saudi Press Agency.
In addition, the National Water Company has also implemented a project to provide drinking water networks east of the Al-Haramain Road, which will benefit more than 4,000 people.
The company has also invited residents in the region to submit home delivery requests via their website to launch the service to them.
Commenting on the initiatives, the head of the western sector of the company, Eng Mohammed bin Saleh Al-Ghamdi, said that the implemented projects are in line with the company’s strategic plans to expand water and sanitation services, and increase their coverage rates through networks in the Makkah region and the Jeddah Governorate.
Al-Ghamdi added that the company is working on implementing more environmental and water projects to increase the network coverage rates for its services provided in the governorate according to its comprehensive plan and pre-set timetables in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.
