KUWAIT CITY, Aug 30: The Ministry of Public Works intends to launch a tender for sewage treatment in Mutlaa, Jleeb and South Abdullah Al-Mubarak area by using mobile treatment units that will be temporarily installed in those areas until they are connected to the main sewage network, reports Aljarida daily. According to sources from the ministry, Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh is a disaster due to its dilapidated sewage network.
The treatment units will be installed to deal with the surplus of sewage water. The estimated volume of wastewater generated from that area is estimated at 24 thousand cubic meters of water per day, which will be treated by these mobile treatment units.
The municipality has allocated nine areas within Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh area to be used for the installation of about 24 treatment plants to deal with the surplus of sewage, ensuring care in following up the network and preventing encroachments on the rainwater network in order to preserve the marine environment, and prevent any sewage pollutants from reaching it.
The sources indicated that the tender is expected to be floated within the next two months, adding that it aims to preserve the environment in those areas by converting the wastewater into triple-filtered water that can be used to irrigate crops.
