Dr Rashid Alleem says authority has made great efforts to produce and desalinate water and distribute it to subscribers
Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA) is developing a comprehensive plan to ensure the provision and continuity of water supplies for the emirate’s residents, on par with the highest levels of availability, reliability and quality, the authority’s chairman has said.
In a statement released by SEWA, Dr Rashid Alleem said that Sharjah’s water networks extend for more than 3,500km and that production reaches 110 million gallons per day across the emirate, including 90 million gallons during the day.
“The authority is making great efforts to produce and desalinate water and distribute it to subscribers, as well as to educate them about the importance of water conservation and optimal use, as well as about remaining at home, except in cases of emergencies, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus,” stated Dr Alleem.
“We are taking all efforts to strengthen the delivery of water, and distribution networks in all regions of Sharjah, and provide water supplies,” he said.
He added that a work plan has been prepared for engineers and technical staff that work at water production and desalination plants, and line maintenance, as their work requires them to be present at the stations.
