Qatar’s water storage capacity will be raised to 2,400mn gallons by 2026 with the construction of 24 mega reservoirs in five different parts of the country, the Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) announced.
The ambitious project that will cost a whopping QR17bn has been set in motion with the awarding of the contracts. The new reservoirs are coming up in Umm Baraka, Umn Salal, Rawdat al-Rashid, Abu Nakhla and Al-Thumama.
Of the contractors selected for implementing the work, about 55% are local companies.
